October
f. 27v-28

The wine harvest is a typical subject for the occupations of October. This miniature gives a detailed depiction of the wine-making process. In the middle ground, a man brings a basket of grapes from the vine. Two men press the grapes using a mechanical press, while others prepare and fill the wine barrels. On the left, some gentlemen can be seen tasting the wine produced.

This version of Turning the Pages does not require the Shockwave plug-in. It foregoes the interactive animation that lets you 'virtually' turn pages and brings you the same high-quality images of our greatest books in standard web pages.
