About this book

Bestiaries are a particularly characteristic product of medieval England: richly illuminated and lavishly produced, they provide a natural history of birds, beasts and fishes, drawing moral examples from animal behaviour and revealing mystical meanings. This Bestiary was produced in the 13th century.
