Persian Zodiac

These images come form an egyptian manuscript from the 14th/15th centuries. It reproduces a persian astrological treatise from ~9th century - ‘Kitâb al-Mawalid' - by Abû Ma'shar, said to have been the most influential document in the development of western astrology. [I believe it is otherwise known as 'The Book of Nativities' or 'The Book of Revolution of the Birth Years'.]

Although produced in Cairo, the manuscript illustrations were almost certainly by a persian artist.

Love-ring with play on grammar, made in France or England in the 15th century (source).

The inside of this broad hoop is engraved with a lady, amidst flowers and foliage, holding a squirrel (a symbol of inconstancy) on a leash, while the outside is covered with a black-letter inscription: This reads: UNE FAME NOMINATIVE A FAIT DE MOY SON DATIFF PAR LA PAROLE GENITIVE EN DEPIT DE LACCUSSATIF (‘a nominative report is given to me, the dative, by the genitive word, in spite of the accusative’).The inside is engraved: + M (ON) AMOUR EST INFINIT (V)E DE VEU ESTRE SON RELATIFF (‘my love is an infinitive which wants to be in the relative’). The verse with its play on grammar recalls fifteenth century French poetry, particularly that of Charles, Duke of Orleans (1391-1465). —from the British Museum description
