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 perennial allied to G. hirsutum Willd. . Roxburgh writes: This species has been introduced into Bengal under the name Nankeen cotton, but does not thrive so well as to make it profitable; the colour of the wool tawny, and very different from the colour of the cotton cloth commonly called Nankeen, which is no doubt dyed. This can scarcely be more than a variety of hirsutum. Inscribed in ink is Gossypium fuscum R. . Drawing is also inscribed by Sir George Watt (1851-1930) in the lower left corner, = G. hirsutum Linn. Sp. Pl. forma religiosa Roxb
