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 superb plant, when seen from a distance, resembles a small yellow Hollyhock. It was discovered by Dr. Wallich's collectors in Nipal, and I found it in the damp interior valleys of Sikkim, growing amidst a rank and luxuriant herbage on the skirts of Silver - Fir forests (Abies Webbiana), at 10-11,000 feet above the level of the sea. The whole plant, like its congeners, abounds in a bright, chrome-yellow, fetid, acrid juice, and is considered to be highly poisonous.”
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.
