The Transport ''Denton Grange'' on the rocks at Las Palmas. March 1900.
AHT. 1900. [Astley Herbert Terry.]
Signed watercolour. Sheet: 175 x 250mm (7 x 9¾''). Mounted on board.
"Denton Grange" ran aground before Christmas 1899. A watercolour by Lieutenant Astley Herbert Terry (1866 - after 1937). 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.

The Rova of Antananarivo, the seventeenth century palace in Antananarivo, the capital city of Madagascar, damaged by a fire in 1995 and currently undergoing reconstruction. Lithograph by Samuel Pasfield Oliver (1838 - 1907), geographer and antiquary. Oliver accompanied Major-General Johnstone on a mission to Madagascar in 1862 to congratulate King Radama II on his accession. He spent some months exploring the island, and witnessed the king's coronation at Antananarivo that year. He returned to the island the following year after receiving news of King Radama's assassination. The history and ethnology of the island interested Oliver, and he devoted himself subsequently to a close study of them. In 1866 he published ‘Madagascar and the Malagasy,’ a diary of his first visit to the island, which he illustrated with some spirited sketches. This was followed by an ethnological study in French, ‘Les Hovas et les autres tribus caractéristiques de Madagascar’ (Guernsey, 1869). In ‘The True Story of the French Dispute in Madagascar’ (1885) Oliver passed adverse criticisms on the treatment of the Malagasy by the French colonial officials. Finally his two volumes on ‘Madagascar’ (1886), based on authentic native and European sources, give a detailed and comprehensive account of the island, its history, and its inhabitants.

Etching, sheet 140 x 85mm. 5½ x 3¼". Trimmed within plate.
Dom Vasco da Gama, 1st Count of Vidigueira (1460 or 1469 – 1524) was a Portuguese explorer and the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India. The expedition set sail for his first voyage from Lisbon on July 8, 1497, following the route pioneered by earlier explorers along the coast of Africa via Tenerife and the Cape Verde Islands. After reaching the coast of present day Sierra Leone, Gama took a course south into the open ocean, crossing the Equator and seeking the South Atlantic westerlies that Bartolomeu Dias had discovered in 1487. This course proved successful and on November 4, 1497, the expedition made landfall on the African coast. Arab-controlled territory on the East African coast was an integral part of the network of trade in the Indian Ocean. Fearing the local population would be hostile to Christians, Gama impersonated a Muslim and gained audience with the Sultan of Mozambique. With the paltry trade goods he had to offer, Gama was unable to provide a suitable gift to the ruler and soon the local populace became suspicious of Gama and his men. Forced by a hostile crowd to flee Mozambique, Gama departed the harbor, firing his cannons into the city in retaliation. Plate to 'The World displayed; or, a curious collection of voyages and travels, selected from the writers of all nations. ... Embellished with cuts' T. Carnan and F. Newbery, 1774-78.
