Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

Abstract

The present article investigates animal and teratological descriptions of theDevisement dou monde. 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).
