Paintings and drawings from earliest times up to the year 1900 are discussed and considerable attention has been given to the neglected subject of prints of South African interest. The main body of this work is a biographical dictionary, with over 1000 entries.

Here will be found notes on all the known artists and engravers who contributed to South Africa's pictorial history. Collectors and Africana specialists will find this work an indispensible reference and working tool. Other readers, with a more general interest in the social and cultural background, will find that historical fact has been amplified by pictorial Africana.
