Catalogue entry

The few lines here, not noticed by Finberg, form a continuation to the right of the sketch of Knaresborough on folio 32 recto (D11420) opposite.
The number ‘32’ inscribed here in blue suggests that this page might have been in a different orientation, as a recto in the original binding. It appears to have been reversed in the binding at some stage after the blue numbers were applied, since the numbers were presumably inscribed on the folio recto. It seems likely that the pages were in the present orientation when they were catalogued by Finberg in 1909.
