Livre du cœur d'Amour épris of Rene d'Anjou part IIa

Salvete Omnes,
starting the day with the second set of the illuminations  painted for the Livre du cœur d'Amour épris of Rene d'Anjou.
 The collection consists of these 16 illuminations with the 24 being empy, and is held by the Austrian National Library in Vienna: Livre du cœur d'amour épris - ÖNB - Cod.Vid.2597 (via Wiki Commons)
The plates are exceptionally beautiful - I am going to divide them into parts, as they are rather substantial

 just one of the pages in its entirety - breathtaking
