Catalogue entry

Like the one on folio 65 recto opposite (D09754), this slight sketch of hills was perhaps made along the south-eastern fringes of Dartmoor between Buckfastleigh and Exeter, the identified subjects of adjacent sketches; see under folios 63 recto and 65 verso respectively (D09750, D09750).
