This and the sheet originally attached to it may have acted as covers to a sketchbook. Compare the subject with the view of Matlock published in Samuel Middiman’s Select Views in Great Britain (engraving dated 1789).
The sheet is torn and stained with dirt and oil, and laid down on thin buff paper; it was originally attached to a similar sheet, not drawn on.
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
