This page contains advice to Turner on travelling in Italy in preparation for the artist’s first tour of the country in 1819. The author of the inscription is James Hakewill (1778–1843), with whom Turner collaborated on the engraved print project, Picturesque Tour of Italy, published 1820 (see the introduction to the sketchbook). The text, which is continued from folio 11 (D13878) and appears to refer to hotels in Florence, reads ‘There are numerous inferior ones & all | good.’
