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:
A discussion on the north and south wind (aquilo).
This spread-eagled bird is usually referred to as a hawk, preceding its chapter on ff.30r-30v. It may depict the hawk spreading its wings to the south wind to facilitate moulting. However it is placed next to a text referring the the devil uplifted on wings of pride. It might be alternatively an eagle (aquila), a pun on aquilo the north wind, and a tangible image for the invisible wind. Initials type 2.
The south wind continued; the hawk.
The hawk grips its frame and twists backwards aggressively.
The gilding of the initial 'A' overlaps the frame of the illustration, indicating that in this case the letter was gilded after the picture.
