Pictures of Tents and Pavilions in the 14th-century Catalan Atlas

This source was produced in Majorca, Catalunya, probably in 1375 (the date that appears on the perpetual calendar in the book), and was apparently disseminated rapidly, as it appears in an inventory of Charles V dated 1380. More information on the manuscript is available at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, from whose on-line exhibition of illuminations, The Age of Charles V, these pictures were downloaded.
