This sheet of paper was once bound in with the rest of the sketchbook and has since been detached, perhaps when the original parchment covers were removed; see the entry for D40500. It bears the pencil note ‘CCLLVII | Back Cover’ to identify its original position at the back of the volume. For the verso, see D40496.
