You CAN Teach a Monkey New Tricks… (Mmm… Marginalia #54)

…provided you know your way around a pointy stick, as this gentleman clearly does:

Much thanks to my informant in deep cover at the British Library for the image and for reminding me that, yeah, I did used to post marginalia on Mondays here from time to time and should really get back to that.

The image is taken from Yates Thompson 8, the Breviary of Renaud de Bar, from France, c. 1303 – 1304.
