Fol. 1': The title of the treatise ספר מקור חיים (The Book of the Source of Life) is executed by Meir in decorative letters. The first word is shaped as a ribbon; the other two are written in display script decorated with acanthus scrolls, hybrids, rabbits, fish and naked human figures. A large putto on the left is pointing towards the title. Flowers, a hand and a lion's head decorate the stems of letters.
