Transcript EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. O VIII. Dancing Snakes and Musicians. Engraved from a drawing, taken on the spot, by Count de Montalembert, when aid-de-camp to General Lord Howden, in India. It is in all respects an exact representation of the Cobra de Capello, or Hooded Snakes, with the Musicians who accompany them throughout Hindostan; and exhibits a faithful picture of the costume of the natives, usually assembled in the bazaars on such occasions. IX. The Tailor Birds of Hindostan, Male and Female. There are many varieties of the Motdcilla Sutoria in different parts of India. Those delineated in this plate were drawn from a pair, that constructed their nest exactly as here represented, (except being more concealed by the leaves of the Convolvulus) in my garden, at Bombay. Few Tailor-birds display more brilliant plumage than the male here selected, and few wild plants in Hindostan are more beautiful than the fruit- bearing Convolvulus. X. The Bulbul, or Indian Nightingale, on a sprig of the Custard-apple Tree. The Bulbul, called also by the Persians Hazardasitaun, or " the bird of a thousand songs," is one of the most beautiful and melodious in the Indian Ornithology. They differ very much in plumage, some being almost black, and others of a lighter brown than that delineated in the plate with the Custard-apple; both of which were drawn from nature at Bombay, and are of the usual size and colour. XL A young Hindoo, among the secular Brahmins of distinction. The different castes of Hindoos are so fully described in the Memoirs, that it is only necessary here to observe that this plate represents the usual dress of the younger Brahmins in the house, and a countenance differing very much from that of the Mahomedan youth in another engraving.
