In the first part the initials are in green, red, and ink (mostly in that sequence; an ink one is omitted on folio 17 verso); some of the green and red ones have extra ornament in the other colour; some are plain, some foliate. The headings are in reddish-purple. In the second part there are plain initials in red and green (not in any regular sequence). There are no headings. In the margins throughout the second part are heads and hands; two female figures are sketched on folio 93, and three concentric circles drawn on folio 93 verso.
