Botanical print of a tree identified as Cinto Inam by the author of the drawing. It is a tropical tree of the Island of Timor in South East Asia. The authors of the facsimile edition think that it is probably Hernandia ovigera.

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 edition was produced by the archive in 1969 and I understand that it is the only existent 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. Some of them have uneven borders or other minor imperfections. In my opinion, this makes the vintage illustration even more beautiful, you get an exact reproduction of an 18th century drawing.

Size: approx. 10" by 13.5"

In excellent condition.

This is the actual page from a 1969 book, not a reproduction.
