Gothic ornament : architectural motifs from York Cathedral by Joseph Halfpenny( Book )

These royalty-free motifs feature exquisite specimens of the sculptured ornaments from northern Europe's largest medieval cathedral. The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St. Peter in York, popularly known as York Minster, was founded as a missionary church. Its soaring Gothic architecture and vast interior, parts of which date back to the 13th century, feature some of the best examples of the medieval craftsman's work to be found anywhere. This compilation consists of 175 illustrations, selected from throughout the cathedral. Like the building of the church itself, the ornaments were executed during different eras. This collection, reproduced from a rare 18th-century volume, offers artists and graphic designers an unusual selection of authentic architectural motifs from the Middle Ages

According to Hunter in Evelyn (op. cit., p. 48) a vegetable called the Scythian lamb or Tartarian lamb "has something like four feet, and its body is covered with a kind of down. Travellers report that it will suffer no vegetable to grow within a certain distance of its seat. Sir Hans Sloan read a memoir upon this plant before the Royal Society ; for which consult their Transactions, no. 245, p. 461"
