Technical notes:
The leaf has been removed from the sketchbook and reattached. The loose pencil marks towards the top and bottom of the gutter relate to this process; such marks often occur on the backs of double-page spreads extracted for display in the nineteenth century, but there appears to be no record of such an event in this case, which would have involved the drawing on the verso and folio 11 recto (D18724–D18725).
