Book Description (Cape Town: A.A. Balkema, 1976) 0869610597, 1976. 4to; original brown cloth, lettered in gilt on spine, with gilt publisher's device to upper cover; dustwrapper; pp. xx + 235, incl. index; maps; many illustrations after the artist's original works, including some in full colour. Dustwrapper a little spotted, and partially sunned; merest trace of foxing to endpapers and top edge. Near fine condition, in a very good dustwrapper. "Baines was much more than an artist: he was also a successful and enterprising explorer and cartographer whose entire life was spent in travelling, investigating, searching and - wherever he went and in whatever circumstances - making pictures. He was also a scientific researcher (no less than 18 plants are named after him). This book is the definitive biography of an outstanding personality. Of the several ambitious journeys-of-exploration into the interior, the following are noteworthy: to the Orange and Vaal Rivers during 1848-53; with Dr Livingstone to the Zambesi in 1860; with James Chapman through South West Africa to Victoria Falls in 1861; and to Matabeleland in 1869-72. He also made an important journey of exploration in Australia and the surrounding seas with A.C. Gregory. . It is an exciting story: what emerges is a fine and courageous character, restless and energetic, of integrity and kindness - and his contacts with Livingstone, Chapman, Andersson, Hartley, Lobengula and many others make a lively story of interesting personalities. . Almost 170 monochrome and eight colour reproductions of Baines' drawings and water-colours . are included; these illustrations have been chosen so as to relate to the text, either by directly illustrating an incident or person, or by providing visual background and atmosphere: the result is a pictorial treat, and a fine survey of Baines' non-formal work.".
