Bordering on Animals

























































This 1430 Milanese illuminated manuscript - 'Bréviaire de Marie de Savoie' - is from Les Bibliothèques Municipales de Chambéry and hosted by the Arkhênum Society, who appear to digitize rare french items on behalf of libraries, museums and the like. (drop down menu for choosing animals; move the magnifying glass in the flash interface to the right to zoom). The parent Arkhênum site is definitely worth visiting also.
