Catalogue entry

Most of the lower half of this leaf has been torn out by Turner, whose view of Windsor mainly on folio 9 verso of the sketchbook (D10427) overlaps slightly on to the remaining portion.
For Windsor Castle in this sketchbook and a connection with Turner’s watercolour (British Museum, London)1 engraved by William Miller in 1831 for Picturesque Views in England and Wales, see note to folio 9 verso (D10427).
