The subject is continued on folio 43 recto (D02535). This is the first of a sequence of views of Norham in this book, followed by those on folios 43 verso–50 recto (D02536–D02549), most of them occupying double pages. Norham was to be a subject of lifelong interest to Turner; see under folio 44 verso (D02538).
