Initials in several colors, sometimes with simple decorations. Capitals, some of great dimensions, richly illuminated, mainly with phytomorphic motifs and rarely with zoomorphic, anthropomorphic and/or geometrical motifs. Different artists at work: some capitals were added at a second stage, with simpler design.

Paper sheet, with the notated antiphon Requiem aeternam, glued on the verse of the last folio.
