This full-page decorative border features trees without leaves, presumably in Winter, and statues that from the context we know to be monuments on tombs. In the foreground is a lilly-pond.

In the book, the border contained a poem (in French, as is the whole book), translated as follows:

Go, my soul, refined and pure,

In the peaceful concert sing!

Go, thou sacred flower and bloom,

By the desert’s lonely spring!

Dreamer, seek they rest discreet

In the grotto’s calm retreat;

Hear, in shade, the voice of love;

Find, in gloom, the light of day—

Light that gleams with tender ray,

Voice that whispers from above.

(p. 23)
