Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh describes this species as an armed tree, common over India and 'the Islands'. It flowers in March and April, and ripens its seed in June and July. Roxburgh also mentions that the Malays usually employed this tree to support the black pepper vine, and in this case they call it 'Chinkereen.' The drawing has been inscribed by Roxburgh in pencil 'This side....['], the racemes being always horizontal', possibly referring to which way up the drawing should be viewed.
