An outstanding work, particularly for its portraits of the Zulus. Includes views of cape Town, Hottentot Holland, Somerset West and Durban. With a taste for travel and draughtsmanship, Angas perfected his art in 1842, studying anatomical drawings in London, and also learned the art of lithography.
He spent two years in South Africa and published the result of his work in 1849 in this imperial folio work. Much of his other work was undertaken in Australia and New Zealand. (SPL Bobins)
