How it works


A facsimile reprint of the large folio of aquatint plates first published in 1804 - 1805, introduction and notes by Frank Bradlow and signed by him

Facsimile reprint. 30 colour plates, half blue leather, marbled boards, a fine copy.

Edition limited to 550 copies.

From the introduction by Frank Bradlow :'Samuel Daniell's folio album of plates" African Scenery and Animals"
was the first of the great colour-plate books produced about Southern Africa. It precedes William Cornwallis
Harris's Portraits of the Game and Wild Animals of Southern Africa the second of these albums - by some
thirty years. Daniell's splendid atlas folio album differs in important respects from nearly all its great
successors; the main difference arises from its early date of publication (preceding the first British occupation
of the Cape) and it this belongs to an historical era in which the British were not firmly established" and
records a different milieu from those that followed.'
