Catalogue entry

This page shows a slight continuation of trees on the horizon to the left of the main part of the view on folio 37 recto opposite (D08009), under which the subject is discussed.
Technical notes:
There are irregular, swirling areas of thicker paper and adjacent thinner areas which appear to have been a manufacturing fault, also evident on folios 31, 32 and 46 (D08002, D08003, D08019).
