Catalogue entry

Eridge Castle appears on the horizon; D08996 (CXXVII 22a) shows a closer view from the same direction, under which the subject is discussed. There is a nearby view on D08989 (CXXVII 18a).
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 D08979 (CXXVII 12); the measurements given above are for the present work alone.
