Creatures and cannibals. Treatise on the Vices. British Library, London. Add ms 28841 fol 3r. 165x102. I love this one. Firstly there is the white bear. There is a period reference to a man (northern europe I believe) having a white bear in his menagerie. Whether it is an albino or a polar bear is unclear. Secondly, that is a bactrian camel. THis is Asian not middle easter as most camels were.Thirdly, there seems to be some confusion over giraffes and zebras. Somehow I find that…
