Sketches by Astley Herbert Terry.
Sketches by Astley Herbert Terry. The Army Service Corps. Vol. V. Sierra Leone & ''The Islands''.
1899-1900.
Obling 4to album, full green morocco gilt; manuscript title in colours and 22 titled watercolours on paper, mounted on card album pages. Front board and title detached, spine broken.
An album of watercolours by Lieutenant Astley Herbert Terry (1866 - after 1937), starting with a view of Las Palmas on Grand Canary dated May 1899, continuing with his arrival at Freetown on the 12th May, then recording his stay in Sierra Leone until August 1st 1900. Although he has ample time to sketch the buildings, people and scenery of the region his stay seems not to have been happy: the final watercolour is titled ''The Last, (and consequently the best!) view of S. Leone'. The son of Major General Astley Fellows Terry, the artist served with both the Army Service Corps and the 60th Rifles. His posting to Sierra Leone coincides with the Second Boer War, so his duties would have been to provide for the troops en route to South Africa. He was promoted to major at the time of his departure, which was probably to the Cape: a 'Major Terry' of the 60th Rifles is recorded as participating in the war. In the 1911 census Terry was recorded as living in Kensington. In 1937 Colonel Astley Herbert Terry was installed as Commander of the Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, which is the last reference to him we can trace.
