Estimate: $1,000 - $1,200

Description: Charles Peter Thunberg AND V. S. Forbes (Ed.) Travels in Europe, Africa, and Asia, made between the years 1770 and 1779 AND

Third edition, in four volumes (pp. xii, 317; xiv, 316, index; 285, index; xix, 293, index). Small octavo (20 cm) in half leather over marbled boards, gilt titles and decorations; Volume I with frontispiece depicting Table Mountain, at rear plate "Marmola Africana" (an unusual rodent-like animal with an expressive human eye and, given the perspective, roughly the size of a Zeppelin), folding plate "Arms and Implements of the Hottentots" rendered in fine detail; Volume II with four untitled plates showing details of Hottentots beadwork necklaces, single-string musical instrument, and Javanese edged weapons.


From the Port Elizabeth sales catalogue (c. 1952): Dr. Thunberg spent some three years at the Cape and made several expeditions into Caffraria in the company of Masson, Oldenburg, and others. Gives much information about the natural history of the country, together with notes on the Hottentots, Kaffirs, & slaves... The work is crammed with accurate observations of all kinds. The Wreck of the "Jorge Thomas; supplied the theme for the immortal story of Woltemade." By the "Father of Cape Botany". For more, see Mendelssohn (II, 499- 500). A few spots to one plate, quite a fine copy.
