The Egerton Picture Book Genesis

Fourteenth-century manuscript in the British Library. Made in a British monastery, possibly in Norfolk. It seems to be unfinished, since only about half the pictures are colored.. Above, the first day of creation.

And the second day.



The Ark.

Tower of Babel.

They're trying to tell Pharaoh something.

Egyptian soldiers with captives.

Angels appear to Abraham.

Jacob's Ladder.


God leans in to command Abraham.
