Caption: Map of climactic zones, 13th century. Cold zones are marked in blue, and warm zones in red. The map includes Latin labels such as 'frigida' (cold). This manuscript page is thought to have been produced in Therouanne in what is now northern France in the later part of the 13th century (after 1277). It consists of tempera colours, pen and ink, gold leaf, and gold paint on parchment. This is the verso of folio 177 from the Ludwig XV 4 collection of manuscripts, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California, USA.
