Illustrations of the zoology of South Africa was written by Sir Andrew Smith and Charles M. Curtis and published in London between 1838 and 1849. 

Sir Andrew Smith was a Scottish surgeon and naturalist who served as the first director of the South African Museum in Cape Town. He led several expeditions into the interior of South Africa in the early 19th century, during which he collected and documented many specimens of the region's flora and fauna.

Charles M. Curtis was an American artist who accompanied Smith on some of his expeditions and produced many of the illustrations for the book. The illustrations are considered some of the finest examples of natural history art from the 19th century, and they provide a detailed and accurate representation of the animals and plants of South Africa.

Illustrations of the zoology of South Africa was a groundbreaking work in the field of natural history, and it helped to establish South Africa as a significant center of biological diversity. The book was also notable for its use of lithography, which allowed for high-quality reproductions of the illustrations to be produced at a relatively low cost.
