NOTES: This sketch is one of a number from Humphrey Repton's 'Red Book' for Langley Park, Beckenham, London, one of the seats of Sir Peter Burrell (1790). Repton would produce a Red Book for each of his proposed landscape schemes. These bound volumes of essays and watercolours served as persuasive marketing tools for his work and included both 'before' and 'after' views of the development sites utilising overlaid paper flaps to indicate Repton's suggested improvements.
