    3-line initial 'B' in gold on a red/blue background with white penwork ornamentation of flowers, and decorated with two small quatrefoils at corners. The initial extends into a 1/4 bar-frame column border in gold, blue and red, and decorated with small green leaf-type motifs. The upper border is decorated with fantastical flowers, mainly barbed trefoils, in various colours and decorated with hairline sqiggles. The lower border has a head of a pig-like grotesque, a head of a bird, a strange large flower, barbed quatrefoils and gold discs decorated with hairline sqiggles. Attached to the fore-edge of the leaf is a small red fabric ball to mark a division of the text. Further into the book there is also a green marker.
