Medieval manuscript painting offers a rich storehouse of material for literary scholars. This volume concentrates on domestic and wild mammals, rather than on the birds and monsters which have been treated elsewhere. The study looks at paintings of bears, camels, cats, dogs and elephants, and describes the kind of manuscript in which they are found, and how they are presented. The illustrations used in the book are from the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
