Transcript ~ - - 12 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. XXXV. A Mahratta Horseman. Engraved from a drawing sketched in the Mahratta camp; where, as remarked of the native foot-soldiers, few of them are dressed or armed exactly in the same manner ; nor is there much distinction in appearance between the officers and the troop they command. XXXVI. / The Table-Land and Cape Town at the Cape of Good Hope. The Table-Land at a distance appears like one long mountain, with a flat surface; a nearer approach discovers its projecting cliffs, craggy sides, and broken precipices. The fortifications and principal buildings in the town being drawn in proportion to the Table mountain, are necessarily on a diminutive scale. / XXXVII. Baroche, on the Banks of the Nerbudda in Guzerat. This city being fully described in the work, it is unnecessary to add more than that the view was taken from the Melon Island, in the centre of the river Nerbudda, opposite the south face of the fortifications. XXXVIII. The Mausoleum of Bawa Rohan, near Baroche. A morning scene soon after sunrise: engraved from an oil painting, which I did from my original drawing, to produce a more brilliant effect in colouring. The fore-ground represents the Mahomedan women. on the anniversary of the death of a husband, child, or relative, strewing the grave with mogrees and other fragrant flowers; at the approach of night they place a few lamps round the tomb, and pass the hours in the melancholy pleasure of tender recollection. The pensile nests of the Baya, or bottle-nested sparrow, are suspended to the branches of the cocoa-nut tree. XXXIX. The Curmoor, or Florican of Guzerat. The plate represents this beautiful bird of about half its natural size.
