Summary
"Struck by the richness of medieval animal epic on the Continent and its paucity in England until Caxton's translation from the Dutch, Kenneth Varty went in search of iconographic evidence of that epic in pre-Caxton England. His findings constitute this new study of the illustration of English fox lore and Reynard the Fox stories during the Middle Ages." "The fictional foxes of England may have descended from French Renarts, who later assimilated traits of Dutch Reinaerts. This richly illustrated guide to all the various appearances of Reynard is divided into sections dealing with typical episodes as well as the ongoing fortunes of Wynkyn de Worde's 1495 cycle of woodcuts, which were clearly inspired by those of the Haarlem Master."--Jacket
