Catalogue entry

There is a study for Sandycombe Lodge on the verso (D08994; CXXVII 21a).
Technical notes:
This page is a face of one of the loose bifolio sheets which form the majority of the so-called Sandycombe and Yorkshire sketchbook, along with a few single leaves. The sheets were not bound, but folded inside each other in a sequence which is not entirely recoverable (see the sketchbook’s Introduction for a suggested order). When unfolded, this page is continuous with the verso of D08977 (CXXVII 10).
There is extensive show-through from the plan in ink on the verso (D08994).
