- ZA HPRA A649-2
The second set, comprising three volumes, contains a series of drawings and proof plates for Andrew Smith's "Illustrations of the Zoology of South Africa", published as a result of the expedition into the interior, from 1834-1836, undertaken by Smith, and sponsored by the Cape of Good Hope Association for Exploring Central Africa.
The drawings are mostly the work of G.H. Ford, with a few by C.D. Bell and H. Lowe. Most of the drawings are the originals to the plates in the work mentioned, while others have never been published. The proofs are nearly all first proofs with the names of the animals in Smith's own handwriting and show, in many cases, the progress in the determination of the species.
