Notes:

This decorative initial featuers a miniature picture of a naked angel (we see his bottom!) listening patiently to a naked women on his left, with a little winged cherub boy on the right. There are also flowers and fronds. The capital letter was used as a drop cap in the book, 12.5 lines—generally considered bad practice, as a drpo cap should align with the baseline of the the line of text at the bottom, but in the days of metal type that was often difficult or impossible.

A good picture for Valentine’s Day, perhaps.
