I am looking for the original source for an image. I can’t find it on the British Museum website. The reference is: Illustration from the ”Romance of Alexander”, French, 1338-44, fol 59r in the British Museum. Thanks in advance!

This is actually one of my FAVORITE Gothic manuscripts.

Also known as MS. Bold. 264 (parts 1 and 2), this manuscript of the Romance of Alexander is Flemish, originating in Tournai, Belgium.

This entire manuscript is available on the Bodelian Library’s “Luna” website. It has some pretty powerful zooming tools in its interface.
