Catalogue entry

Diana Cook and Dorothy Kirk have identified the view on folio 127 recto (D09630) as showing Carthamartha and Bishop’s Rock on the River Tamar.1 Although they do not mention it in relation to that view, the present page appears to be a slighter repetition, perhaps from further to the north-east, and extended onto folio 127 verso opposite to show the hills in the direction of Stoke Climsland to the south. For further notes on Carthamartha see under folio 126 recto (D09628).
For other views along the Tamar Valley, see under folio 114 verso (D09606).
