Scope and Contents

In the center is a large circular sketch presenting a possibility for the plate's overall composition. The sketch is similar, but not identical, to the final image (in reverse). In the upper right corner, Leighton has drawn a two-headed arrow and written "light." Around are numerous smaller circular sketches in varying degrees of completion. Some are similar to the central image, but some present men in rowboats, etc.
