This slight sketch, looking south to Dartmouth Castle on the right and Kingswear Castle on the left from Bayard’s Cove or nearby, informed the distance and the left-hand part of the untraced watercolour Dartmouth, Devon,1 dated by Eric Shanes to about 1811,2 which was engraved in 1815 for the Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England (see the concordance of the series in the 1811 tour introduction). The central and right-hand sections of the design were based on the sketch on folio 106 recto (D08564; CXXIII 103).
For other Dartmouth views in this sketchbook and elsewhere, see under folio 3 recto (D08366).
