With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner filled this page with views of the medieval city of Angers, located on the River Maine close to its confluence with the Loire. The castle and the tower of the Church of La Trinité have been identified in the upper right-hand quadrant of the page. 1 Turner made extensive study of Angers in this volume. A list of his drawings of the city is provided in the sketchbook introduction.
