Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 1 Recto:
Blank
D08283
Turner Bequest CXXII 1
Stamped in black ‘CXXII – 1’ bottom right
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Technical notes:
In common with the rest of the page, particularly the edges owing to their proximity to the leather overlaps inside the front cover (D40898), the bottom right-hand corner is rubbed and darkened. Assuming a number ‘1’ was inscribed there by John Ruskin in red ink in sequence with his foliation of the rest of the sketchbook, it is no longer apparent.
Verso:
Blank
