Harley 4751 f. 35v Eagles

Description: Miniature of eagles, one holding a fish, illustrating the text that when it is young the eagle can see fish in the sea from a great height; but when it gets old its eyes become dim, so it flies towards the sun and burns off the dimness, before immersing itself in water, which restores it to full strength and perfect eyesight. 
Origin: England, S. (Salisbury?)
