Catalogue entry

Technical notes:
Finberg’s 1909 numbering implies that this page should be the recto of the leaf; instead, the drawing of a ‘River with bridge in foreground’ which he numbers ‘162a’ is now bound as the recto (D09428), albeit stamped ‘CXXXI – 162’. The ‘162’ inscribed on the present page would then be aligned with the sequence on the rectos of other pages. See the entry for D09428 for further discussion.
