The subject is drawn with the page turned horizontally; this sheet appears to have been rebound in the wrong position in the book. David Hill identifies the subject as Dryburgh seen from near St Boswell’s. Another drawing of Dryburgh is on folio 66 recto (D00971; Turner Bequest XXXIV 62). In the early 1830s Turner was to make a watercolour of an even grander panorama of this picturesque spot (Tate N05241),1 including the whole sweep of the bend of the Tweed that almost encircles Dryburgh, for Scott’s Poetical Works, vol.V (Tate impressions: T04950, T05141).
