This is a facsimile of an illustration from a manuscript about the flora of Timor. The originals were drawn by a Portuguese priest in the 18th century and are held in an archive in Lisbon and they are watercolor illustrations on rice paper.
This facsimile edition was produced by the archive in 1969 and I understand that it is the only existing reproduction of these drawings.
A facsimile is a copy or reproduction of an old book or manuscript that is as true to the original source as possible. As you can see in the scanned images, the page shows the illustration as it is in the original.
Size: approx. 10" by 13.5"
In excellent condition.
This is the actual page from a 1969 book, not a reproduction.
