Indian Botanical Drawings 1793-1868


As new .The links between the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and India go back for two centuries. Medics who studied botany in the Garden as part of their training laid the foundations of our knowledge of the Indian flora. The Botanists also commisioned Indian artists to make paintings of the plants to supplement the specimens and written descriptions. Most of this material was sent back to Britain where it survives in collections such as the RBG-Edinburgh.These spectacular illustrations are from a selection exhibited in Inverleith House in 1998.They are the most important part of the book. There are also descriptions and photos of a number of the important Botanists
