One thought on “Charles Knight (ed.), Twelfth Night, Illustration #13

  1. The Benedictional of St Æthelwold is now in the British Library, Add. MS. 49598. The illumination showing the Magi is on f. 24v: http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/Viewer.aspx?ref=add_ms_49598_fs001r. This is a previously unnoticed mention of this important manuscript. It seems that the engraving is probably copied from Gage’s illustrations of the manuscript in ‘Archaeologia’.
