Catalogue entry

The upper view extends across the width of the page, showing low country with hills rising beyond, particularly to the left. At the bottom right appears to be another sketch of a valley, with a group of trees at the centre. Although the locations are presumably in the West Country, the lack of obvious landmarks makes identification problematic.
