On a1r a ten-line Italian (Milanese) initial ‘Q' is supplied in gold on a maroon ground; the area defined by the letter is blue with filigree in white; in the lower margin, a shield bearing the coat of arms of Hieronymus Bottigella, vairy, flanked by his initials: ‘HI BV', all on a maroon ground, of the same palette as the initial, within a green wreath; a gold dot on each side of the wreath; see Pächt and Alexander II, 114 no. pr. 136.
