Watercolour on paper. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1820). In 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh notes that the bark of this tree, when powdered and mixed with pepper, is used by native doctors for the treatment of dysentry. The drawing is inscribed 'Received from Rodney 9th June 1791', a record of the East India Company ship that delivered the drawings to London.
