Foliate border extensions in red, blue, green, and pink, and including gold dotting; some pencil strokes of sketch for border still visible. A mirror-image impression of the border has been left on the facing margin. Other initials, some with extensions into the margins or gutter, and paragraph marks are supplied in red or blue.
