One of the great treasurers in our Archives and Library is a book about animals called a ‘bestiary’.
This lovely book was written in Latin and decorated over 700 years ago, all by hand. The book was never finished: some animals were never illustrated, and some of the illustrations were never coloured.
Please help us by adding some colour to these images, as well as those from Gerard’s ‘Herbal’, Gessner’s work on animals and Dart’s ‘History and Antiquities’. All images can be found here.
