Particularly, Marco Polo’s fauna and its monstrous and marvelous extremes are explored both in the Franco-Italian text (occasionally also with the help of the Tuscan and Latin versions), as well as in the iconography of the illuminations included in four manuscripts of the Devisement/Milione (mss. Royal 19 D I, Bodley 264, BNF fr. 2810, Arsenal 5219).
