Notes

First edition, limited to 1000 copies, this number 809 and numbered verso of the title, on the wrapping and mailing case. Crealock was Chelmsford's Military Secretary during the Zulu War, having served with him previously during the 1878 operations in the Eastern Cape. "Crealock rode with his artist's materials in his saddle-bag and recorded, as occasion offered, landscapes, camp sights and scenes, battlefields and military and civil personalities. Ten of the drawings, sent to London with all the speed possible in the days when Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift were stop-press sotries, were reproduced in the Illustrated London News. Crealock's drawings are of pleasing artistic quality Their excellent detail has been praised by botanists, geographers, and historians who recognise in them an authentic pictorial record of the Eastern Cape and Natal nearly a hundred years ago" (jacket blurb).
