This listing is for a facsimile of an illustration from a codex written by a portuguese priest in Timor in the 18th. century. The originals are watercolor illustrations on rice paper and are held in an arquive in Lisbon. This facsimilar edition was produced by the arquive in 1969. The authors of the 1969 edition have been unable to identify this plant.
You receive facsimiles of the illustration and the handwritten description of the plant (in Portuguese, see thumbnail 5).
A facsimile is a copy or reproduction of an old book, manuscript or other item of historical value that is as true to the original source as possible. It differs from other forms of reproduction by attempting to replicate the source as accurately as possible in terms of scale, color, condition, and other material qualities.
Size: approx. 10" by 13.5"
