Catalogue entry

Technical notes:
This page is a face of one of the loose bifolio sheets which form the majority of the so-called Sandycombe and Yorkshire sketchbook, along with a few single leaves. The sheets were not bound, but folded inside each other in a sequence which is not entirely recoverable (see the sketchbook’s Introduction for a suggested order). When unfolded, this page is continuous with D08994 (CXXVII 21a). The sheet is noticeably off-white; whether this is inherent or owing to age and exposure is not clear.
