Catalogue entry

Like the wider view on folio 87 verso (D08528; CXXIII 84a), this sketch seems to show the view from the road along the north side of the Teign Estuary near Wear Barton, east of Kingsteignton (see folio 86 verso; D08526; CXXIII 83a), looking east towards the South Devon coast, with the masts of shipping at Teignmouth on the left and the Ness headland on the right. For other views of Teignmouth see under folio 71 verso (D08499; CXXIII 68a).
