Dear Dana,

Thank you for the references. Here are a few more samples collected while investigating Saggitarius. The first has a feel of the depictions as seen in the VMs, though I haven't tracked down the source.

Note Septemb3 / October / Novemb3 written in by hand here (much like on the VMs, and in a broadly similar hand and script), even though the month-names also clearly appear in the circular text:-

Perhaps that was a standard way that the church "secularised" possibly astrological documents? If that *is* some kind of tradition, perhaps (if it could be traced) it might help suggest a part of the VMs' (lost) provenance?

Cheers & Season's Greetings, ....Nick Pelling....
