Livre de la chasse
Bequest of Clara S. Peck, 1983
Recognizing a Great Hart from His Droppings
In the previous chapter, Phoebus instructed the groom how to recognize the sex, age, and physical condition of a stag by its footprints. Here, he explained how to examine a hart's droppings to determine whether it was suitable prey. In the miniature, a harborer (locater), who has located a stag with the help of his lymer, shows his findings to his master.
