Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977, no. 269rn"The miniatures of the CSM, and esp. of Escurial MS T.j.l, get high marks here for what they show of daily life in the thirteenth century. K. reproduces those that accompany cantigas 19 and 107. Comments deal more with the actions taking place than the details of the miniatures which are, in any case, there for the reader to see."
