This print has been meticulously reproduced on high grade canvas. This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description.
“A very remarkable plant, forming, from its peculiarity of habit, a singular feature in its native forests. Duabanga was first made known by Dr. Eoxburgh, who procured plants of it from Chittagong for the Botanic Garden at Calcutta, and prepared an excellent description, published after his death, in the ' Mora Indica;' it has also been fully described by Hamilton in his Commentary on the 'Hortus Malabaricus,' in the seventeenth volume of the Linnsean Transactions. The tree is called "Door" by the Lepchas.”
