Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, this is one of a series of sketches of Edinburgh from near the Stewart Monument (not the Burns’ Monument as Finberg suggested) on Calton Hill.1 Taken from Regent Road to the south of Calton Hill it looks west along Prince’s Street to Edinburgh Castle with the Governor’s House of Calton Gaol at the bottom left and the monument at the upper right. This is one of a series of sketches that explore different compositions of the view of Edinburgh with the Stewart Monument in the foreground. See folio 79 verso (D26411) for further information.
