Catalogue entry

Roughly drawn in blunt pencil, the page comprises five small summary sketches of the formations of cliffs and headlands. The last two of these appear to extend onto folio 13 recto opposite (D35358).
Technical notes:
There is a little offset chalk from D35358 towards the centre of the gutter of the sketchbook.
