Acerca de


This lavishly illustrated book is about a remarkable collection of botanical drawings belonging to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. The watercolours were commissioned by Alexander Gibson, an East India Company surgeon, and depict plants grown in the botanic gardens under his control in the Bombay Presidency. They are the work of an unknown Portuguese-Indian artist and were made between 1847 and 1850.The main section of the book includes colour reproductions of the 170 drawings arranged in order of the Bombay Flora, which Gibson co-authored with Nicholas Dalzell. Half the species depicted are native to western India, the other half are exotics from as far afield as Argentina and Australia. The colour plates are preceded by substantial chapters on Gibson's life and work and a history of Dapuri and the other botanic gardens under his charge. An illustrated introduction tells of the author's travels in search of information about Gibson, his gardens and the drawings Table Of Contents: Preface6Foreword7Chapter 1In Search of Dapuri9Chapter 2The Life and Work of Alexander Gibson23Chapter 3A History of Dapuri and the District Gardens51Chapter 4The Artist and the Drawings79The Drawings87Glossary and Place Names225Acknowledgements227Bibliography229Notes and References233Index237 Special Features: Dapuri Drawings
