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:
This page was left incomplete in the twelfth century, with only one initial type 2 inserted. In the thirteenth century, the scribe who finished the book after ff. 94r filled in the four initials type 4 on this page. His hasty work is exemplified by the incorrect insertion of 'U', subsequently corrected to 'F' for fagus, beech tree.
The cypress, juniper, oak, ash.
Inaccurate spacing for rubric. Quire mark bottom of page centre 'M', and folio mark '+' bottom left. Two initials type 2, three initials type 4.
