Antiphoner cuttings each showing a haloed angel inside an "A," with the upstroke of the letter forming one of the angel's wings, the initials in shades of blue, gray, brown, pink, and orange, with feathery extensions; the canon law leaf with the head of a man--perhaps a lawyer?--in a red and white Renaissance headdress, who appears to be looking askance at something, the background of burnished gold. The gold on the canon law initial mostly rubbed off, the colors slightly subdued, but still a good specimen; the antiphoner cuttings a little rubbed and soiled, but with paint intact and the colors rich.
