This 1890s Victorian book has an arts-and-crafts-inspired Mediaeval/medieval-style calligraphic title page drawing, a design based on manuscript books and early printed books. The full-page border includes “green man” heads (sometimes also called jack-in-the-green) and vines. The heavy top left area is intended to be a decorative initial letter “T” incorporated into the border, although it’s subtle enough that you could use this border and ignore the initial.
