Les_Tr%C3%A8s_Riches_Heures_du_duc_de_Berry_septembre

Check out this neato page from a 15th-century illuminated manuscript! It’s from a French book of hours (Les Très Riches Heures du duc de Berry), and there’s one to signify each month of the year. This one highlights the grape harvest of September, with the castle of Saumer in the background.  Lovely!
