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:
Portrait of the nightingale.
She sits on her nest singing to relieve the tedium of the night. Initial type 2.
The goose. A good animal for guarding.
Two aggressive geese in a roundel.
Rubric missing at the top of the page. Faint correction at bottom right.The verb 'prodest' is missing before the word 'cum' on the last line. There is a slight indication of an editorial insertion in the right margin, but it does not look like 'prodest'. The sentence should read 'The cry of the discerning brother is helpful when he sees negligence.' (Clark, 1992, 227) Initial type 2.
