- Curator's comments
- This is part of a collection of twenty-nine drawings by GA Robinson held by the British Museum, seven of which are on the opposite side of another drawing.
"The situation of the tent at the 'crags' is very romantic. It is erected in the midst of a small wood of tea-tree of a large growth, so arranged as to have the appearance of rooms and passages, bowers, retreats &c, the whole completely arched over with foliage, completely arboreous." From Robinson's journal entry for 27 May 1830 (Plomley 1966:165).
