Catalogue entry

This view of Jedburgh is from the east and is similar to the sketch of folio 61 verso (D26035; CCLXVII 63a). Jedburgh Abbey is at the centre of the sketch with Newgate to the right and Abbey Bridge to the left. The building at the top left is probably Jedburgh Castle Jail.
See folio 63 verso (D26039; CCLXVII 65a) for further references.
