Description

This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description.

“Nothing can exceed the beauty and delicacy of this little plant, which is of rare occurrence in Sikkim, inhabiting watercourses in very dense shaded woods, and covering bushes with its pale, translucent, membranous foliage and pale blue flowers. Like all its congeners, it is full of milky juice, and exhales a peculiar strong and very disagreeable odour when bruised, much like that of the Eue in character. This and the two other species figured with it, are very singular plants.”

This document has been meticulously reproduced on high-grade canvas, and is set behind glass and held together by a slender black frame. Mounting hardware is also included.
