Folio 14v - De caprea; the wild goat
Folio 15r - De monocero; the monceros. De urso; the bear.
The wild goat. The Monoceros.
Two agile beasts lock horns in a roundel.
The illustration is not related to the text which describes the goats eating grass in high pastures. Pricking and ruling are visible. Initial indicator 'e' in right margin. Initial type 2.
The monoceros. The bear.
The monoceros has the head of a stag, the tail of a boar, elephant's feet and a horse's body. A horn four feet long projects from his head. This creature was derived from the Indian rhinoceros. The bear forms its offspring with its mouth. The female gives birth to a small eyeless piece of flesh which is gradually shaped in to a cub by licking. It is born head first resulting in a weak head supported by strong loins which allow the animal to stand on its hind legs. In the lower margin is a faint sketch of a man with beard and tight fitting cap, in profile. This is in a different style from the other illustrations and is probably later in date.
Single 'v' shape in top right margin, in faint ink. Pricking and ruling are visible. Initial indicator 'u' in right margin. Initial type 2.
