Catalogue entry

Finberg does not transcribe Turner’s inscription, but presumably read it as ‘Falmouth’, which appears questionable. If the town is shown in both studies, the views are to the north, as it descends to the shoreline to its east. For other views in and around Falmouth see under folio 7 verso (D08375).
