On parchment.
Yellow heightening of the majuscules. One 2-line flourished initial, gold with blue flourishes, and on f. 1r one square miniature (5 lines) in a golden frame representing the Instruments of the Passion, accompanied by a full rinceaux border with a gold and pink bar in the inner margin. In the upper right and the two lower corners flowers and plants grow on a circular grassy patch of earth. The spiralling tendrils between them carry gold balls and vine leaves and flowers.
This small luxurious book of devotion seems to be organized according to the liturgical year, the Exaltation of the Cross being celebrated on 14 September, the martyr Eustace on 20 September.
