Hand and shoulders portraits of four Africans, two bushmen and two Bechuana natives (now Botswana), published in Daniell's 'African Scenery and Animals', one of the scarcest plate books on South Africa. Despite the inscription it had been suggesed that the plates were in fact engraved by William Daniell. Daniell (1775-1811) arrived in South Africa in 1799 (soon after British occupation) and in 1801 joined an exploratory expedition to Bechuana, then at the limit of known territory. Daniell himself discovered the Kuruman Eye, a drinkable spring rising up into the Kalahari Desert, which has become one of South Africa's most celebrated natural wonders. He lived in Ceylon from 1806 until his death from tropical fever.
