This lavishly illustrated book is about a remarkable collection of botanical drawings in the collection at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE).

The links between RBGE and India go back for more than 250 years; surgeons who studied botany at the Garden as part of their medical studies laid the foundation of western knowledge of the Indian flora. Supplementing their written plant descriptions and dried plant specimens with botanical drawings commissioned from Indian artists, these men formed collections such as the one held in Edinburgh.

This book tells the story of these collections through the reproduction of a selection of drawings that are both scientifically accurate and stunningly beautiful.
