DESCRIPTION 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.
“The present is certainly the most striking of the many fine alpine plants of Sikkim. I first saw it from a distance of fully a mile, dotting the black cliffs of the Lachen valley at 14,000 feet elevation, in inaccessible situations, and was quite at a loss to conceive what it could be; nor was it till I had turned back the curious bracteal leaves and examined the flowers that I was persuaded of its being a true Rhubarb.”
DIMENSIONS 10"x 15.5" [W x H] Add 1/4th inch on all four sides and 1 inch depth for frame.
