Catalogue entry

The page belongs to a sequence of similar looking unidentified landscape views across folios 65 verso–68 verso (D26383–D26389). The subject of the two or three sketches on this page is a ruin on a hill which is similar in appearance to the sketch on folio 66 verso (D26385). At the left of the page is the continuation of a sketch on folio 68 (D26388) which depicts what may be a different ruin on a hill.
