Catalogue entry

The printed text comprises sections 218 to 224 of the ‘Direct Roads from London’ section of the British Itinerary. For a concordance of its interleaved pages, see the introduction to the sketchbook.
This page has been noted as showing a view of Falmouth, but there is no drawing present and folio 112 verso opposite (D08576; CXXIII 109a) was presumably meant.1
