Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued to the left on folio 126 (D06337). Identifying the viewpoint of this double-spread, Hill reproduces it as if continued to the right across folios 128–127 verso and 126 verso (D06341–D06340, D06338), to form a continuous panorama from the North Terrace, for which see folios 124 verso–125 (D06334–D06335). However, the component pages are not contiguous in the book and Turner must have drawn his panorama in separate sections.
