Felling the cedars of Lebanon. The Pelican.
One text correction in margin: -??-uendo reservat [start unclear, but a correction for ‘reservandos’]. Initial type 2.
The Pelican. Pelicans live in Egypt, and are devoted to their young. The fledglings fight their parents who kill them The mother bird pierces her side and as her blood flows over the bodies of her babies, they return to life.
the narrative is divided into three scenes showing the babies attacking their parent, the parents killing the babies and the mother piercing her side to resurrect her offspring. Possibly the idea of mother pouring sustenance over her babies comes from the birds' habit of regurgitation. Folio mark of three horizontal 'match sticks' in top right corner.
