The inscription in German ‘Grahl | auf d Bad | in | Schandau’ is not written in Turner’s hand. It presumably refers to Bad Schandau, a spa town located on the Elbe in south Saxony.
Inscriptions by the executors of Turner’s will (H.S. Trimmer, Charles Turner, Charles Locke Eastlake and John Prescott Knight) are below the German inscription (these are transcribed in full above). There is also an inscription in blue ink at bottom right ‘[...] 3 in [?paging]’ which may be by John Ruskin.
