An Arabic bestiary by Ali ben Mohammed ben 'Abd-al-Aziz ben Fotouh Al-Mawsili Tajd-al-Din Abou'l-Hasan, Ibn al-Duraihim (1312-1361). The Escorial ms. (Escorial, Real Biblioteca, manuscript Árabe 898) was written and illuminated by the author and is dated March 28, 1354. The miniatures are compared with those in Morgan Library ms. M.500 (Manafi' al-Hayawan), which antedates the Escorial ms. by more than a half century.
