Two scenes from Captain Henry Butler's "South African Sketches". Above is a coloured and more detailed centre scene of three Europeans trapping a leopard [?] in a rocky outcrop; below is a native rider about to throw a spear at a quagga (a now extinct zebra subspecies). Butler, a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, was posted to South Africa with the 27th or Inniskilling Regiment of Foot. In 1837 and 1838 he travelled to the hunting grounds of the Bontebok Flats (between the Klipplaats and Windvogel Rivers in Eastern Cape Province, about eighty miles north of King William's Town). He returned to England in 1839 and in 1841, the year of publication, he transferred to the 59th Regiment, promoted to Captain. His book appears to have been a vanity publication, accounting for its rarity, containing only the lithographed title, 15 plates and 15 pages of text. His only other publication was an article in the New Monthly Magazine.
