Captain Allen Gardiner
NARRATIVE OF A JOURNEY TO THE ZOOLU COUNTRY, IN SOUTH AFRICA
William Crofts, London, 1836, first edition
Octavo, iv, 412 pages, illustrated with 26 lithographic plates, including hand-colored frontispiece, and 2 other hand-colored lithographic plates, as well as 2 folding maps.
The two folding maps printed by C. Hullmandel in this volume have been taken from Arrowsmith's map enlarged, and the remainder filled up generally from personal observation. The plates are from sketches taken on the spot, but, in many instances, reduced to suit the size of the volume. The color plates depict Zulus in various dresses as well as hair styles, the black and white lithograph scenic views as well as cultural features of the Zulus, including housing, utensils and vegetation.
