190pp. Folio. Paper wrappers. Rebound in card covers. British Parliamentary Paper. HC 120. A very clean copy. Further analysis of the government chinchona plantations in India & their attempts to develop the quinine (from the bark) for medical use for the treatment of malaria. Includes a further 21pp report from the explorer and noted botanist Robert Cross on the collecting of seeds and plants of the Chinchonas of Pitayo. The first batch from Peru reached India in September, 1860 but by the December all had perished! The following year, in April, Robert Cross arrived with a second batch, which after establishing in the Botanic Garden at Ootacamund, were planted in the Nilghiris Hills in South India, near Madras under similar conditions found in its native homeland of the eastern Andes. Dr. Simpson's chemical process for precipitating the alkaloid from the bark is described and preferred over Mr. Broughton's as being simpler and producing a safer product . Further second copy available in original blue paper wrappers. N° de ref. de la librería 174374
