Default Feuerwerkbuch 1420 1462 and Ms from 1332

Two more books on the art of "feuerwerk" from 1420's and 1462. (links can be traced back to the beginning of the Ms).

These 2 pictures i found very interesting. The first link is that of the Grandes Chroniques de France 1332-1350 (http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/Viewer...s_16_g_vi_f181v).
It shows a box with roped sticks (?) which are lit. the second link shows a page from the 1420s feuerwerkbuch with a similar roped stick.
