Descripción 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).
