Turner’s memorandum is slightly inaccurate in defining the end of this leg of his 1811 West Country tour, as the book ends with numerous views of St Michael’s Mount, a few miles short of Penzance, which appears rather in the Cornwall and Devon sketchbook (Tate D41289–D41291, D41366; Turner Bequest CXXV a 14, 15, 16, 84).
There is a dark vertical crease for the full height of the cover, just to the left of centre. The edges are trimmed slightly irregularly, and there is some spotting and staining.
Blank, save for stamp in black ‘CXXV’ top left.
