It is not part of the project to provide a definitive edition of the text of the Bestiary, but to help readers by providing a transcription and translation of the text. Currently the following editorial conventions obtain:
The allegory of the wolf.
Pricking and ruling are visible.
The nature of dogs.
Dogs are most generously illustrated with three sets of illuminations. Here three attentive dogs are shown with collars and leads. They are the most intelligent of all animals and are devoted to humans. They can track down wild beasts, guard sheep and protect property.
This illustration may apply allegorically to the three spiritual guides described at the end of the dog section on f. 20r since the master would hold their leads. Pricking for pouncing around the dogs. Initial indicator 'c' in right margin. Initial type 2.
