There is a variant of the figure's profile in pencil t.l. and of his legs in ink b.r. On the back are a head in pen and ink of W. G. de Glehn (cf. N06075) and a pencil head possibly of Edward VII; the join of the two pieces of paper on which the drawing is made conceals what may be another pencil head.
