EDITORS COMMENTS
Cascarilla, scientifically known as Croton eluteria, is depicted in this exquisite handcoloured copperplate engraving from Dr. Willibald Artus' Hand-Atlas sammtlicher mediinisch-pharmaceutischer Gewachse, published in Jena, Germany, in 1876. The illustration showcases the plant in its natural beauty, with intricate details bringing out the unique textures and patterns of its leaves. Cascarilla, also known as Jamaica iodine or mezcal, is a shrub native to the Caribbean and Central America. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for various purposes, including as an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic agent. The plant's bark is the primary source of its medicinal properties, which contain a compound called croton oil. The engraving's meticulous detail allows us to appreciate the plant's intricate features, from the veins on its leaves to the tiny hairs on its stems. The handcolouring adds an extra layer of depth and richness to the illustration, making it a valuable addition to any botanical collection. Dr. Willibald Artus' Hand-Atlas sammtlicher mediinisch-pharmaceutischer Gewachse was a comprehensive guide to medicinal plants, featuring over 1,500 different species. The atlas was designed to help medical professionals and students identify and learn about the various plants used in traditional medicine. This particular illustration of Cascarilla is a testament to the high-quality workmanship and attention to detail that went into creating this valuable resource over a century ago.
