Alec M. Cotman (20.10.77) has a print of this in his collection. It was lithographed in stone by Day and Hughe and repr. in Alec Cotman's book 'Old Norwich', published by Colman and Hawcroft, pp. 60-61, pl. 4 where caption is Norwich Castle (this A.M. Cotman suggests is a more correct title). A.M. Cotman suggests it was part of the Bulwer Collection, sold Walker's Gallery, London, 1927 and is listed in their 'Walker's Quarterley' on MEC No. 9 as 'Norwich from the East'. Graphite study in collection of S.D. Kitson.
