Sketchbook of tours in East Anglia and Devon: p. 46 Exeter Cathedral, Devon August 1898

d. and inscr. b.l.: "EXETER / CATHEDRAL / DEVON / AUG 1898" CRE MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928) Exeter Cathedral is one of the finest examples of the Decorated Gothic style, with Norman towers forming its north and south transepts. Mackintosh has picked out elements of the building, beginning at the west front and moving along the north facade to the north transept. At top is a generalised sketch of the gable and battlemented parapet of the west front with a schematic drawing of the great west window. The larger drawing of a window to its right, however, is from the westernmost bay of the clerestory. Below this (bottom right) is a study of the central bay of the north porch, and, to its left, the small two-light window and string course of the north transept. The blind arch and buttress on the left of the drawing, which appear to belong to the west front, are also from the north transept. The page has been inaccurately numbered "48" in an unknown hand.
