Notes:

A decorative initial capital letter “A” at the start of a chapter. This “historiated” letter A shows a woodsman, perhaps, with an axe (ax) raised over his head and a sheep at his feet. It could also be Abraham sacrificing a lamb instead of his son Isaac. The man wears a cloak with a hood, and shorts, and seems to have either soft boots or bare feet with anklets. The background seems to be a sort of criblé texture.
