A pseudonymous writer has raised the interesting idea that somewhere or other there may be cite-able precedents for some of my findings. I rather like the idea, but the person seemed unable to provide any particular details. I guess it’s just some vague notion which he has acquired. Nonetheless, there may be something to it, so please do leave a name, and link to their work, if you know anyone else whose analysis of the imagery in MS Beinecke 408 led them to conclude that:
* that the manuscript’s imagery consistently relates, and refers to the eastern world – most specifically in the botanical and ‘pharma’ sections.
