Fol. 1: The title of the first treatise ספר שערי חיים (Book of the Gates of Life) executed by Meir is written in decorative letters. The first word is partly shaped as a ribbon and decorated with acanthus scrolls, a hunting scene and a putto. The second and the third words consist of letters in red and green enclosed within a cartouche. Below the title is a bird perched on a branch.
