Drawn, Engraved & Published by Samuel Daniell, No 9 Cleveland Street, Fitzroy Square, London, Aug.t 15, 1805.
A very rare coloured aquatint. Sheet 380 x 505mm (15 x 20"), on Whatman paper. Trimmed within plate,
A bushpig at a watering hole, a tribesman with hunting dogs behind, 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.

[Elephants and Camels]
[Elephants and Camels] Éléphants & Chameaux
[by Balthazar Solvyns]
[published Paris, 1811]
Etching with hand-colouring, platemark approx 490 x 355mm (19¼ x 13¾"). Central fold as issued; uncut sheet.
'The elephants in the print are represented eating the leaves and the bark of some shrubs of which they break the branches with their trunk; they have all of them one of their legs pinched with a piece of wood, wich [sic] prevents their making their escape. At a distance are some camels following a corps of troops. The landscape is a pass in the Carnatic, the only entrance is by narrow roads' (from letterpress published with print). From the third volume of Balthazar Solvyns' 'Les Hindoûs'. Solvyns (1760-1824), a Flemish artist who lived in Calcutta from 1791 to 1803, etched a collection of 250 plates documenting various aspects of Calcutta life. The set was first published in Calcutta, where it proved a financial failure, and Solvyns produced another set which he published in Paris after returning to Europe, although again the venture was unsuccessful, probably in part due to its publication at the height of the Napoleonic Wars. Solvyns later returned to Antwerp, where William I appointed him Captain of the Port.

50/100 [signed Charles Cain]
London, [n.d. c. 1920-30s].
Fine etching. 175 x 250mm (7 x 9¾"), with wide margins. Vertical crease along left margin.
Three elephants, which look to be drawn from figurines. Charles W. Cain (1893-1962) produced 74 etchings and engravings of scenes in Iraq, Persia, India and Burma (Myanmar) between the 1920s and 1930s, likely inspired by his service in the Border Regiment in India and Mesopotamia. With such a distinctive thematic subject Cain gained a strong reputation as an Orientalist printmaker.
