Psalm 89, ff. 159v - 160

These pages contain two particularly interesting marginal illustrations. On the left-hand page, a man holds a stone monument which bears a strong resemblance to the Eleanor Crosses, the monuments erected by the heart-broken Edward I across the country wherever the funeral bier of his beloved queen, Eleanor of Castile, stopped overnight on its journey to London in 1290. On the right-hand page two men pull a rowing-boat.

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.
