On the front cover page there is a caption that reads "Together put for me, Johann Lorentz Garle from Knigswehrt. F.A.B." Along with the prayers, there are also coloured, hand-drawn illustrations (Fraktur art) of various religious figures in ink and watercolour with caption written under neath in Latin. Some of the figure include S. Cunigunta, Christus in Horto, Conceptio B.A. Maria, S. Iosephus.
