Turner Bequest CXCV 55–80, 82, 84–90, 92–7, 99, 100, 102–4, 106, 109, 113–26, 128, 129, 130, 144, 145, 150–3, 163–5, 169–74
See Royal Academy Perspective Lectures: Sketchbook, Diagrams and Related Material circa 1809–28. The diagrams in the present subset were numbered by Turner in the order in which they were to be shown during his lectures as Professor of Perspective at the Royal Academy. They are thought to have been made for the first course of lectures, given from early in 1811. A concordance of Turner’s numbered subjects (and thus not including unnumbered versos) and the numbering in Finberg’s Inventory follows:
