Cactus indicus, ca 18th century

Watercolour on paper, ca late 18th century. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh.
Roxburgh noted in his Flora Indica that this cactus was common around Calcutta, and concluded there is every reason to imagine it is a native of these countries. These plants were probably introduced to India from the West Indies as early as the late 15th Century, initially for their fruit, and later for the dye made from cochineal insects (Dactylopius coccus) which infect these plants. The drawing includes studies of these insects, the winged male can be seen far right, the female with her protective white covering in several stages on the left. It is likely that there are actually three plant species represented on this drawing. Fig.1 is possibly Opuntia stricta/dillenii, Fig.2 Nopalea cochenillifera, and Fig.3 Opuntia tuna

Citrus acida, R

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 writes: Under the above definition I mean to comprehend the various varieties, if not species, of the sour lemons or limes found in India, and as the petioles are very generally winged I think it necessary to separate them from the lemons and citrons which have not that mark, or have it in a very trifling degree. Roxburgh then describes nine different varieties which he has studied in Bengal, ...the whole being cultivated under my own eye, in the Botanic garden [Calcutta], and are arranged according to the estimation in which they are held by both natives and Europeans. These varieties are: 1) Pati-Leboo, or Neboo; 2) Kaguji-Neboo; 3) Gora-Neboo; 4) China-gora-Neboo; 5) Camaral-Neboo; 6) Rungpore Lime; 7) Taba-Neboo; 8) Arabian Lime from Muscat; 9) Meetha Lemoo

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
