Johann Wolffgang Heydt From the foreword of Scenes of the Cape of Good Hope in 1741 as drawn By Johann Wolffgang Heydt by Major R. Raven-Hart: Nothing is known about him except what he tells us in his one and only book, and a few entries in official documents. He was in Table Bay from January 25 to March 16 1741durign which time he made these five plates. He reached Holland the same year and drew 623gld. of accumulated pay: obviously he must have drawn very little while in service - probably living for the most part on expense accounts provided by the Governors who patronised him.
