- This miniature marks the beginning of the Gospel Lessons. In the lower and right borders, the initials G and Y are intertwined in a love knot set against a white ground (now dark from oxidation). The initials probably belong to the couple for whom the manuscript was made. The white ground is decorated with ermine tails, a heraldic device associated with the Breton ducal family of Montfort. Other leaves in the Free Library's collection, Lewis E M 9:8, 8a, and 10, are from the same manuscript.
