TOP IMAGE. A river appears in lower right corner, traveling from "front" to "back" of image. Along its banks two distant windmills occur, indicating Holland as the location. A distant boat with sails, and a closer group of three row boats on river. The closer group has thee figures bent over their work, which looks like hauling nets. In the center is a nearly barren twisted tree, at whose base is a rough hut of blanks and branches. A path from the bottom right bends up and around the hut and tree, on which a small group of three are poised (two sitting figures appear to listen to a standing third) and a single man travels further into the distance. Houses with thatched roofs, some patched with boards, appear on the right of the image, along the riverbanks into the distance.
BOTTOM IMAGE. A river curves gently back from the bottom right. Boulders surround the bank on the left half of the image, with scraggly trees and vegetation. Several boulders stretch out into the water, and on one of these, on the bottom right, is a group of perhaps three viewers. Two are seated, and appear to be listening to a third, who is standing and pointing to the right. Hills can be seen in the bottom right corner, stretching into the distance along the river.

Left edge displays small tears, indicating former binding.
TOP IMAGE. A river tapers from the bottom edge to the right. In the right bottom corner a row boat is steered by a man standing with a pole, while a passenger sits astern. A thatched-roof structure, possibly multiple structures, dominates the left-hand side of the composition, while a windmill - identifying the scene as taking place in Holland - appears in the bottom right distance. Other structures line the left riverbank in the right corner, perhaps denoting a village. Boulders fill the bottom left.
BOTTOM IMAGE. A river fills the bottom right corner, along whose banks two or three travelers - one standing, one sitting, a third possibly lying down - rest with their gear. Boulders fill the bottom left, covered with scraggly vegetation. The largest boulder is topped by a nearly dead tree, while to the distant left another boulder is topped with another pair of travelers, one figure standing and pointing with walking stick, a second at his feet.
TOP IMAGE: A river scene, with the river and scenery in the bottom 1/3 of image, and the skyfilling the top 2/3rds. A boat with two fisherman near shore in bottom left corner, and nother small pair of fishermen appear on bank in bottom center. To the right is a grove of trees, stretching from bottom right to top right. Distant mountains appear on the bottom left, as the river stretches into the background. An architectural structure - walls with perhaps dwellings on top - stretches along the riverbank on the left.
BOTTOM IMAGE. A river appears in the bottom right corner and streches into the central background. A path tops the left-hand bank, on which a group of three travelers, facing the viewer, walk in the bottom left corner of image. Two carry walking sticks. In the center stands a medieval pilgrimage marker, near whose base is a traveler in large hat with walking stick. Trees line the river on both the right and left sides, and in the left grove is a partially hidden thatched house.
TOP IMAGE. On the bottom right appears a river, with at least three boats moored against her banks. Along the shore, in the central bottom area of the image, is a large groups of figures, potentially a local market area. In the center of the image is a plank bridge with figures carrying bundles, and the bridge (ramp) leads from the center to the top left, where it connects with a large brink palazzo-type structure. In the central background stands a large thatched and planked group of dwellings. A pile of barrels fill the bottom left corner.
BOTTOM IMAGE. A three-arch stone bridge with crossing figures spans the image from center right edge to the bottom left corner. Underneath pass small rapids with rocks. At the bottom right corner is a group of three, perhaps with a fishing pole; the left and right figures kneel, while the central figure stands with pole in hands, pointing up. A cross - perhaps a medieval pilgrimage marker - stands at the left-hand end of the bridge. On the right-hand side behind the bridge are tall stone pediments, perhaps dwellings or fortress-like walls. A distant part of the river and its structures can be seen in the left-hand corner.
