FHYA selection from the Frere Series

[Source - Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA using Wikipedia, 2017: Sir Henry Bartle Frere was the British High Commissioner for Southern Africa from 1877 to 1880. During his time as High Commissioner he attempted to merge the states of southern Africa into a British Confederation – this attempt was unsuccessful, and led to resistance, and, ultimately, the Anglo-Zulu and Anglo-Boer wars. Some of the specimens he collected were donated by his sister, Mary Frere, in 1912.]
