Notes:

This decorative initial letter “Y”, or drop cap, is from an alphabet designed by Hans Holbein and dating from 1523.

In the drop cap Y, Death is about tk take a baby from its crib while the terrified mother looks on. There was associated text originally from the start of Job Chapter 14, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.”
