The subject was drawn with the page turned horizontally. Dryslwyn is a Welsh castle of the early thirteenth century, captured by Edward I in 1287. Its ruins dominate the fertile valley of the Tyfi, in which it stands half-way between Llandeilo and Carmarthen; see folio 28 recto (D01271; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 21). Another view of Dryslwyn is on folio 34 recto (D01355; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 101).
In 1909 Finberg noted that this leaf, then loose, was ‘Probably p.27a’,1 that is to say originally falling between what are now folios 36 recto and 38 recto (D01278, D01279; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 27, 28), but D01342 (Turner Bequest XXXVIII 88) has since been bound in at that position. He later thought that this drawing might show Carreg Cennen Castle;2 see under folio 23 recto (D01341; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 87).
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
