Catalogue entry

With the page turned horizontally, this may be a view across the Hamoaze (Tamar Estuary) from Cremyll, at the north-eastern end of Mount Edgcumbe, towards Plymouth Dock (later Devonport). The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles in and around Plymouth, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions.
