Image of an item from the British Library Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts

I saw a retweet of Keith Senkowski by Judd Karlman today: “The British Library is making 35k digital images from the illuminated manuscripts collection public domain!” I decided to spend a minute or two looking for it. From the starting page, I picked a random manuscript, didn’t know what number to provide, typed “5” and looked at the pages.

Here’s an image of a dude trapped in hell surrounded by green devils, for example... (”Dives tormented by demons”)
