More Manuscript Mysteries

Take a peek at this manuscript.  Can you figure out who wrote it, where it was published, or when?  (Hint on the when:  look to the bottom, learn your Roman numerals!)  We’ll be able to translate this soon, but in the meantime can you look at the Latin words and find any that look like English words?  Also – what seems to be going on in the drawing?!  Good luck.
