Gossypium herbaceum, Willd. (Dacca cotton)

Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh. In his Flora indica, Roxburgh describes this species as a bi-triennial. He also mentions that this species and its varieties Dacca, Berar and China, are the most cultivated by the natives in India. Roxburgh reports " G. herbaceum is in general cultivated all over Bengal and Coromandel. It is reared about Dacca, and furnishes that exceedingly fine cotton wool employed in manufacturing the very delicate, beautiful muslins of that place." He finally tells how the three main varieties [Dacca, Berar and China] differ from each other. Inscription by Sir George Watt (1855-1930) on drawing reads A form of G. neglectum Tod
