With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Frank R. Bradlow. Number 404 of an edition limited to 550 copies signed 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.' From the introduction by Frank Bradlow.
