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.

“This magnificent plant is one of the most curious and beautiful of the whole natural family to which it belongs, and was therefore selected by Dr. Thomson and myself to bear the name of B. H. Hodgson, Esq., F.L.S., of Dorjiling, in the Sikkim-Himalaya, a gentleman whose scientific services in the Himalaya of Nepal and Sikkim justly merit this honour, and in whose hospitable residence my examination of this splendid plant was conducted.”

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.
