Margins inhabited by half-figure of man, wearing hat, with right hand raising scroll largely illegible but possibly inscribed SICH UOIR DIRH N ... (possibly based on Psalm 66:04) at upper right, and bas-de-page illustration of pair of confronted monkeys, seated, with joined hands and feet (possibly suggesting Scene, Sports and Games: Tug-of-War).
Margins decorated with floreate and foliate decoration, including thistles.
