Folios 82 verso–87 recto (D32424–D32433), all drawn with the pages turned horizontally, form a brief sequence of views around the Bacino. Finberg limited his description of this one to ‘Boats in canal’,1 although its main subject is clear enough for identification. Beyond moored vessels, the campanile and dome of the church of San Zaccaria are seen above the Riva degli Schiavoni to the north-east; waterfront buildings now preclude such a clear view. The Hotel Danieli (Palazzo Dandolo) may be indicated towards the left. Above is a separate detail of the campanile of San Giorgio dei Greci, north-east of San Zaccaria, brought in from the right.
