Aquarius - detail from a 14th century Spanish-Jewish manuscript with 6 astronomical books

“All in all, the manuscript represents a unique blend of Greek, Arabic and Hebrew scholarship, written in Christian Spain. It is secular and scientific and yet richly illuminated on vellum and illustrated luxuriously.”

The Schoenberg Centre for Electronic Text and Image has online images of manuscripts – some of which have blank pages (texture layers in GIMP)
