This drawing shows different stages of the drawing process. The lower section of the drawing is complete, with place names recorded and brushwork interlining ('hachuring') depicting the relief of the land. The other half of the drawing is unfinished. No record of the steepness of the land has been made and place names are absent. This gives us an idea of the order in which draughtsmen recorded different types of information. A pencil note records that this drawing was published in 1813.
