Catalogue entry

Continuing on folio 34 verso (D13641; CLXVII 32a), this sketch of Dunbar Castle is taken from the west and is similar in its view of the ruins as the drawing across folios 23 verso–24 (D13623–D13624; CLXVII 22a–23). The present page shows the ruins of the South Battery and castle gate.
There is a pink smudge next to Finberg’s inscription at the top right; the remains of Ruskin’s red ink numbering, and a yellow mark along the top edge of the page.

Blank
