Description
1790 1st ed Vaillant Africa Voyages Hottentot Ethnology Zoology Birds Giraffe 2v



François Le Vaillant was an 18th-century French explorer known for his descriptions of animals and birds in Africa. In 1780, he began a voyage to the Cape of Good Hope with the Dutch East India Company. While there, he collected various specimens of animals and plants, and encountered local natives, the Hottentot people. These two volumes include views of the Hottentots and their villages, as well as birds, and large African mammals such as giraffes.



This first edition is famous for its inclusion of uncensored depictions of Hottentot men and women within the 12 full-page engravings.
