Description:

This book is about a remarkable collection of botanical drawings belonging to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. The watercolours were commissioned by Alexander Gibson, and East India Company surgeon, and depict plants grown in the botanic gardens under his control in the Bombay Presidency. They are the work of an unknown Portuguese-Indian artist between 1847-1850. The 170 drawings are reproduced in the same order as they appear in the 'Bombay Flora', which Gibson co-authored with Nicholas Dalzell. Chapters on Gibson's life and work
