"Of all the numerous hunters and naturalists who have exploited the African Wilderness and recorded their impressions in book form, none, if we except Cornwallis Harris, have combined the cunning of the practised artist with the skill of a first-rate sportsman and a naturalist's innate love of animals. Harris, after his memorable expedition in 1836-37, proved to the world that he possessed this rare combination, and his Portraits of the Game and Wild Animals of Southern Africa' will always hold high rank as an authority upon the rapidly vanishing fauna of that once favoured land."-Saturday Review, December 28th, 1895.

Leonard Digges, a most excellent mathematician, a skilful architect, and a most expert surveyor of land.”—Athen. Oxon. His son, Thomas Digges, is known chiefly as the editor of his father's works.

The extraordinary talent of the members of this family in all branches of
mathematics excited the admiration of De Morgan, who speaks of them as follows:-
"One of the most important names connected with the advancement of English
mathematical science in the sixteenth century is that of Digges.' A spy-glass,
jealously hidden from the eyes of would-be imitators, was supposed to have been
in their possession.
