Folio 31v Commentary
|f31v Text: domestic and wild hawks; how the hawk should moult..
Illustration: A pair of turtle doves on top of a symmetrical
tree. The text on f32r refers to the female turtle dove's chaste devotion
to her mate, even when widowed. So, the illustration refers to the birds'
faithful marriage. The dove's fidelity is only a legend. Three initials
type 2, colour indicator (V) for the vermilion initials 'A' and
'T'. The spacious initial 'P' is squeezed around the text and overlaps
the frame of the illustration.
