Folio 11r Commentary
|f11r Text: The beaver, The ibex.
Illustrations: The beaver is a gentle animal whose testicles
have a medicinal value. When hunted, the beaver escapes with his life
by biting off his testicles. If he is hunted for a second time he shows
his incompleteness and is spared.
The ibex has two enormously strong horns. If it jumps from the top of a mountain, its body is held safe by its horns.
Pricking and ruling visible. The letters 'e,e' in the right margin are initial indicators. The initials are type 2.
