The Rouen Festival Book of Henri II









These beautiful paintings make up about half of the 65 page handwritten manuscript:
'Relation de l'entrée de Henri II, roi de France, à Rouen, le 1er octobre 1550'

If you put that title into the search page at the wonderful Rouen library site, all page images will come up as thumbnails. [Henri II]
