About this book

Manuscripts of the Middle Ages teem with pictures of animals, ranging from fierce hunting hawks tied to their owners' wrists, to proud lions added to the coats of arms of noblemen, to terrifying monsters of the Apocalypse. The images in this volume provide a window onto a time when animals both factual and fantastic played a leading role in the medieval imagination.
