Item Description: Studio Editions Ltd., London, 1990. Quarto; hardcover, with gilt spine-titling; 256pp. with many engraved illustrations. Very minor wear to the board edges. Dustwrapper slightly rubbed. Very good. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight. Originally published in 1774 as 'History of the Earth and Animated Nature', Oliver Goldsmith's popular writings were described as being 'of a class that the world would not willingly let die'. This fascinating study of the wonderful creations of nature is combined here with fine natural history illustrations taken from M Charles d'Orbigny's 'Dictionnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle' as well as Oudart, Pretre, Blanchard, Travies and Baron. Goldsmith drew heavily on the work of earlier naturalists, using Buffon as his main guide, although in fact he had little regard for the elaborate classifications of other scientists. It was his aim ' to excite an interest in the science of natural history by displaying before the public eye its numberless treasures'. This, therefore, is not a scientific work but a highly entertaining account of the habits, subsistence, manners, friendships and hostilities of a wide array of animals, such as the scorpion, the sheep, the cassowary and the sea urchin.

Item Description: London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1806, 1806. 2 volumes, quarto (263 ×200 mm). Recent sprinkled calf, red and green labels to spines, blind double fillet panel with floral corner-pieces to the boards, edges sprinkled red, blue and gold marbled endpapers. Very slightly rubbed on the joints, hinges neatly repaired, light browning, some foxing, and a little off-setting from the plates as usual, but overall a very good set. 9 folding engraved maps, 2 of which are coloured and 1 of which is hand-coloured in outline, 8 hand-coloured aquatints. Second, and best, edition of this influential survey of South Africa, which has a particular focus on the Cape Colony. First published in 1801-4, here the text is revised, expanded and corrected and 8 superb aquatint plates after Samuel Daniell added. Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary, on his mission to the Cape of Good Hope in 1797, being promoted to auditor general in 1798. "Macartney at once sent him on a double mission, viz. to reconcile the Kaffirs and Boers, and to obtain more accurate topographical knowledge of the colony, there being then no map which embraced one-tenth of it. In pursuit of these objects he traversed every part of the colony, and visited the several countries of the Kaffirs, Hottentots, and the Bosjesmen, performing 'a journey exceeding one thousand miles on horseback, on foot, and very rarely in a covered wagon, and full half the distance as a pedestrian, and never except for a few nights sleeping under a roof'. He owed his appointment [as second secretary of the Admiralty] mainly to the ability he had shown at the Cape and in his history of the colony, with its unrivalled map" (DNB). Barrow was elected to the Royal Society in 1805, and was one of the founders of the Royal Geographical Society. His accounts "established new standards for travel writing" and through his friendship with John Murray he "secured the publication of a succession of travellers' accounts which generated the great public interest in exploration" (ODNB).
