These are just a few manuscript vignettes found in the wonderful Liber Floridus database. All the above images are from the 14th or 15th century. This site hosts illuminated manuscripts for les bibliothèques Mazarine et Sainte-Geneviève.
The 1600 manuscripts (31,000 images) can be accessed either individually or via the iconography searching section (as I did). I clicked on 'thésaurus' near the bottom of the iconographique page and went trawling randomly through the huge list of keywords. [previously]
