This, perhaps taken near Amsteg, and showing the ruins of the castle of Attinghausen and, as Finberg suggested, the conical form of the Bristenstock is probably another of the various drawings of the Reuss valley in this sketchbook; for these see note to folio 30 (D04686). For another view perhaps of the Bristenstock, see folio 33 (D04689).
