Catalogue entry

The drawing continues on folio 34 recto opposite (D08914; CXXV 33). Only the western slopes of the mount and part of the castle are shown here, from the north.
There is a vertical line running down from the right of centre, isolating a small, separate study of what appear to be rocks at the right-hand edge of the page.
Technical notes:
There is some brown spotting and staining.
