Portrait of an unnamed woman and child

Plate 18 from the book A voyage to Cochinchina, in the years 1792 and 1793...to which is annexed an account of a journey, made in the years 1801 and 1802, to the residence of the chief of the Booshuana nation...southern Africa...by John Barrow (London, 1806).
William Somerville (1771-1860) British surgeon was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1817. In 1806 he entered the British army as garrison surgeon to Cape Town, and was present when British colonial forces took the Cape of Good Hope.
The Kora, or Korana, people were of the Khoekhoen group: a traditionally nomadic pastoralist indigenous population of southwestern Africa.
