Catalogue entry

Technical notes:
The page is extensively stained, possibly as a result of the 1928 Tate Gallery flood. It is the recto of the front free endpaper, and its green paper is laminated with the first leaf of the regular white wove comprising the main body of the book (see the verso, D32264). It is continuous with the inside of the front cover (D41025), where the green paper is laminated in turn over a bellows-type pocket.
