Two Elaborate Encampments, c. 1404

Princes of the East

Princes of the West

Master of the Cite des Dames: Livre du Chevalier Errant by Thomas de Saluces. c.1404 Bibliotheque Nationale MS. Fr. 12559

Note the dormer on the roof of the rectangular tent in the foreground, and the turret like structures attached to the corners of several of the rectangular tents in both: also, the charming and unified yet varied scheme of tent decoration in both encampments.
