In this Arts and Crafts style image, a wide piece of paper is drawn with curled-up side edges; the paper is set in a ground featuring a blue sky with white birds. The birds are flying out of an open wicker birdcage held by a winged and garlanded boy incorporated into the initial letter C of the word Contents; brds and bamboo sticks also appear as if in front of the paper. The blank paper originally bore the list of contents for the book.
There is also a separate image available with just the decorative initial with the naked winged boy squatting in the letter C.
