Notes:

A decorative initial capital letter “I” used as a drop cap at the start of a chapter. This was probably cut into the side of a block of wood, which might explain why the letter is not quite vertical; the technique of engraving onto the end-grain of the block came later. There are decorative flowers, vines and dots.
