Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Flora of the Presidency of Bombay, Vol. 1 The necessity for local or regional Floras to supplement Sir Joseph Hooker s great work, The Flora of British India, which deals with several thousand species of plants drawn from a very wide area and grown under diverse climatic conditions, has been fully recognized by the highest botanical authorities. The inauguration of the Botanical Survey of India and the subdivision of the great Indian continent into regions each forming a branch of the Survey, under the general supervision of Major Prain, I.M.S., Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Calcutta, has secured the collection of sufficient material to warrant the preparation of regional Floras for certain portions of the entire area. On the extension of the Survey to the Western Presidency, I was appointed by the Government of Bombay Honorary Director of the Botanical Survey of Western India, with Mr. G. M. Woodrow as Assistant; and I was further allowed the services of a paid Herbarium-keeper, a few native plant-collectors, and a small annual grant to provide for travelling-allowances and other incidental expenses. A Herbarium was established at the College of Science at Poona, of which I was at that time Principal, and a real advance was soon made in our knowledge of the botany of the Bombay Presidency. Since my retirement, after 30 years actual residence in India, I have been selected by the Government of Bombay to carry out this, the first of a series of regional Floras projected by the Director of the Survey.

The shells are cleared of the pulp and seeds by the negroes in the following manner: --they make a hole at one end, into which they pour hot water, in order to dissolve the pulp, which afterwards is extracted with a stick, and the inside rinsed with sand and water, to loosen and clear away the fibres that remain; they are then dried and become fit for use, and will contain water or other liquids for a length of time.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Manual of Indian Timbers: An Account of the Structure, Growth, Distribution, and Qualities of Indian Woods In publishing the Manual of Indian Timbers, the compilation of which has, owing to the writer having been at the same time engaged in his ordinary official duties, lasted over three years, it is necessary to make a few remarks on the circumstances which have led to its preparation, the materials by the assistance of which it has been compiled, and the sources from which the information given in its pages has been drawn. It will be remembered that the forests and forest products of India were represented at the Paris Exhibition of 1878 by a collection which was undoubtedly the most complete that has ever been formed in India and sent to Europe for exhibition. This collection, prepared and arranged under the immediate supervision of Dr. Brandis, the Inspector General of Forests, was got together in the winter of 1877-78, by the simple process of inviting from the different Local Governments and their Forest Officers the contribution of rough wood specimens and other products, which were afterwards prepared and arranged in a central workshop, first in Simla and afterwards in Calcutta. During the progress of this work, which lasted from August 1877 to May 1878, a very large and valuable series of wood specimens, of undoubted botanical determination, was received. The pieces of wood (to which class of specimen alone we need now refer) which were then sent, were so large and valuable that it was settled that at the same time as the principal object of the work, the collection for exhibition at Paris was got ready, a number of duplicate sets should be also prepared, sufficient to supply a good stock to the Royal Gardens at Kew, and to other museums both in Europe and America, as well as type collections to be deposited in the offices of the Forest Conservators in the different Provinces or Circles. It is obvious that such authentic collections are likely to serve as reference collections of great and undoubted value not only to Forest Officers, but to all persons interested in timber and ornamental woods and their applications to engineering works or industrial manufactures.

It forms an elegant and excellent fence in the gardens of Bombay. Graham.) Rumphius wrote of this plant, Frutex stipitosus qui sese sursum explicat in longos et flagellosos ramos. There are many ornamental plants which we often observe arranged in straight lines, forming inner fences or shady avenues in Eastern gardens. These are the Lawsonia inermis, the Hennah plant of Egypt (Mendi), resembling the English privet. The Lonicera ligustrina, Wall, (privet-like honeysuckle), is much used at Ootacamund, and answers well, forming a very compact fence about gardens. (Wight.) The lime, mulberry and pomegranate are suitable, and have been long in use; likewise the Hibiscus rosa sinensis, L. (shoeflower), Adhatoda vasica and Betonica, Nees, Gardenia florida (Gundha raj), Allamanda cathartica, c. Phyllanthus reticulata, Poir. (P. Vitis-Idaa, Rox.), found wild in every part of India, and seems to thrive well in all soils and situations. It is frequently employed for ornamental hedges in gardens, for which end it is well chosen, as its thick evergreen foliage and constant succession of beautiful red berries give it a pretty appearance. I am not familiar with this in southern India, except as a small jungle tree. Pedilanthus tithymaloides, Poit. (the slipper plant) is much planted as a border for gardens, taking the place of box. Neither goats nor cows will touch it. The following are also used for garden borders: --Graptophyllum hortense Justicia picta) with its variegated leaves; Vinca rosea, Willd., common all over India; Heliotropium curassavicum, L., domesticated at Bangalore;.

Saul encamped under a pomegranate tree, which must have been near to the Rock of Rimmon (1 Sam. xiv. 2). The Egyptians prized and cultivated the pomegranate in their gardens; and, as already hinted, it was well known to the ancients. Pliny mentions varieties of the fruit, the use of the blossoms for dyeing, of the rind for tanning leather (as now in Morocco), and of both fruit and flowers in medicine. Grenada in Spain is supposed to have derived its name from the pomum granatum or seeded fruit, and the arms of the province are said to be a split pomegranate. The tree flourishes in the West India islands, into which it was long since introduced; but its native area extends from the Himalayas to the Caucasus. The pomegranate is too delicate a plant for any but the warmest parts of our own island; and even there it is cultivated simply for its foliage and flowers. It was introduced about 1548, and is mentioned by Lord Bacon, who recommends the juice of the sweet varieties of the fruit as a remedy for disorders of the liver. The rind of the fruit, and the root, are still prescribed, in the form of decoctions, by English physicians. Sycamine (Gk. ovm/Mos). Sycomore (Heb. shikmah, Gk. iTVKOfiapata). Ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up. --Luke xvii. 6. The sycomore trees that are in the vale. --I Kings x. 27. In giving almost identical names to the mulberry (crvKaiMvos) and the sycomore-fig (crvKonopov), the old Greeks were not led into any serious botanical error; for both the figs and the mulberries are classed by most botanists in the same order of plants.

The species are chiefly found in Brazil, where they are common, Peru, and the North of India, and among them are several which, as this species shews, would be worth introducing to cultivation. G. Pseudovaccinium is stated to be a native of sandy open plains in Brazil. Auguste de St. Hilaire says that he found it on the coast from the city of Caravellos in the Province of Porto Seguro as far as the island of St. Catharine, and that it forms a shrub from one to two and a half feet hijh.

It is a good herbaceous plant, remarkable for the neat ness of its foliage and flowers. Sometimes its leaves are quinate, as represented in the plate. The Thermopsis labumifolia of Mr. Don, which has also been named Thermopsis napaulensis by M. Decandolle, is, as we have shewn in the Transactions of the Horticultural Society, a genuine species of Anagyris, and should be called Anagyris indica. Easily increased by division of its creeping roots. A perennial, growing 2 or 3 feet high, with creeping roots. Stem erect, flexuose. Leaves 3-leaved, sometimes 5-leaved; stipules ovate, leafy; leaflets oblong, obtuse, or obovate, minutely downy beneath, with smooth veins.

But such an assertion is destitute of all proof: and Dr. Royle by no means supports it; he who had such ample means of studying Indian firs in their native mountains, merely says that the opinions of Mr. Lambert and Professor Don, lead him to suppose there may be some ambiguity on the subject. Certainly then the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is not A. Smithiana, whatever that may prove to be. Mr. Gordon says that the cones of A. Smithiana are not half the size of those of A. Khutrow. Now the cones of the latter are figured by Dr. Royle, and measure as nearly as may be 6 inches in length; the cones of the former, as figured by Dr. Wallich are 5 inches 6-10ths and a half long; a difference which in such matters amounts to nothing. It is clear therefore that the cones Mr. Gordon has examined are not cones of A. Smithiana at all, which is also confirmed by his statement that the young seedlings of what he calls A. Smithiana, are much slenderer and smaller than those of A. Morinda; a circumstance completely at variance with the character of the former species. That the Chiswick plant is A. Khutrow is asserted positively by Dr. Royle, who says he immediately recognised it. And its foliage corresponds with that represented at t. 14 of his illustrations. While, however, Mr. Gordon seems wrong in his supposition that the Abies Morinda of the Horticultural Garden is A. Smithiana, he is certainly right in saying that he has two distinct kinds of cones of the Abies genus from British India. There are doubtless two Himalayan Spruces, of which one may be called A. Khutrow, while the other bears the name of A. Morinda; but to which the old plant in the Horticultural Garden belongs cannot be determined for the present. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781130776911

It has, with capital raised in England, caused railways to be constructed, so as to connect and bind together all the principal places throughout the continent, with many engineering works of the first magnitude, viaducts over big rivers and broad floodbasins, and inclines with stiff gradients up mountain-sides. It has carried out scientific work of magnitude yet of intricacy and minuteness in the trigonometrical survey, the geological survey, the Botanical Gardens, the meteorological observations. Such, in the most brief and rapid summary, is what British rule has heretofore essayed to do and actually done. It is daily attempting and accomplishing more and more, never satisfied with progress made up to date, but ever striving to advance further. In the next chapter I shall consider how far the results in regard to the national condition have been commensurate with all this action.

A pretty shrub, of a very ramous character, common in the Peninsula, bearing large yellow flowers, and opposite thorns in the axils of the branches. It forms an elegant and excellent fence in the gardens of Bombay. Graham. ) Rumphius wrote of this plant, Frutex stipitosus qui sese sursum explicat in longos et flagellosos ramos. There are many ornamental plants which we often observe arranged in straight lines, forming inner fences or shady avenues in Eastern gardens. These are the Lawsonia inermis, the Hennah plant of Egypt (Mendi), resembling the English privet. The Lonicera ligustrina, Wall, (privet-like honeysuckle), is much used at Ootacamund, and answers well, forming a very compact fence about gardens. (Wight. ) The lime, mulberry and pomegranate are suitable, and have been long in use; likewise the Hibiscus rosa sinensis, L. (shoeflower), Adhatoda vasica and Betonica, Nees, Gardenia florida (Gundha raj), Allamanda cathartica, and c. Phyllanthus reticulata, Poir. (P. Vitis-Idaa, Rox. ), found wild in every part of India, and seems to thrive well in all soils and situations. It is frequently employed for ornamental hedges in gardens, for which end it is well chosen, as its thick evergreen foliage and constant succession of beautiful red berries give it a pretty appearance. I am not familiar with this in southern India, except as a small jungle tree. Pedilanthus tithymaloides, Poit. (the slipper plant) is much planted as a border for gardens, taking the place of box. Neither goats nor cows will touch it. The following are also used for garden borders: --Graptophyllum hortense Justicia picta) with its variegated leaves; Vinca rosea, Willd. , common all over India; Heliotropium curassavicum, L. , domesticated at Bangalore; . .

Also to one of the stations of the Israelites in the wilderness--Rimmon-parez (Numb, xxxiii. 19). Saul encamped under a pomegranate tree, which must have been near to the Rock of Rimmon (1 Sam. xiv. 2). The Egyptians prized and cultivated the pomegranate in their gardens; and, as already hinted, it was well known to the ancients. Pliny mentions varieties of the fruit, the use of the blossoms for dyeing, of the rind for tanning leather (as now in Morocco), and of both fruit and flowers in medicine. Grenada in Spain is supposed to have derived its name from the pomum granatum or seeded fruit, and the arms of the province are said to be a split pomegranate. The tree flourishes in the West India islands, into which it was long since introduced; but its native area extends from the Himalayas to the Caucasus. The pomegranate is too delicate a plant for any but the warmest parts of our own island; and even there it is cultivated simply for its foliage and flowers. It was introduced about 1548, and is mentioned by Lord Bacon, who recommends the juice of the sweet varieties of the fruit as a remedy for disorders of the liver. The rind of the fruit, and the root, are still prescribed, in the form of decoctions, by English physicians. Sycamine (Gk. ovmMos). Sycomore (Heb. shikmah, Gk. iTVKOfiapata). Ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up. --Luke xvii. 6. The sycomore trees that are in the vale. --I Kings x. 27. In giving almost identical names to the mulberry (crvKaiMvos) and the sycomore-fig (crvKonopov), the old Greeks were not led into any serious botanical error; for both the figs and the mulberries are classed by most botanists in the same order of plants.

Smithiana, he is certainly right in saying that he has two distinct kinds of cones of the Abies genus from British India. There are doubtless two Himalayan Spruces, of which one may be called A. Khutrow, while the other bears the name of A. Morinda; but to which the old plant in the Horticultural Garden belongs cannot be determined for the present. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN.
