Description
This fascinating woodcut engraving from a 13th century manuscript depicts armed envoys from Sudan holding captive Crusaders prisoner and demanding ransom from the Westerners to the right. A "little old man walking on crutches" heads the delegation to propose the terms of ransom. Made by an unknown artist, a facsimile was published in an 1878 history of science and literature of the Middle Ages and is now in the public domain.
