Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued on folio 25 (D10376), this is a view of Hastings from the shore, stretching from the castle to East Hill, similar to the double-spread on folios 22 verso–23 (D10371–D10372) but showing less detail.
For views of Hastings in this sketchbook see notes to folio 2 verso (D10371).
