Initial letter “A” from a historiated alphabet by Valerio Spada. Seventeeth century Italian people: a person with a walking-stick or cane, and wearing hat and coat, sits under a tree; another person gestures, and a small dog wags its tail. The four winds, or possibly cherub’s heads, at the corners of the circular frame.
The whole alphabet - a - b - c - d
