EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning handcoloured botanical illustration captures the beauty and intricacy of the Cascarilla tree, also known as Croton eleuteria. Native to Caribbean islands, this tree is prized for its medicinal properties and aromatic qualities. The bark of the Cascarilla tree is used to create a tonic and stimulant, while its oil is extracted for use in flavoring liqueurs. The detailed drawing by G. Reid and engraving on steel by Weddell showcases the delicate flowers and leaves of this important plant. This print was featured in John Stephenson and James Morss Churchill's "Medical Botany," a comprehensive guide to medicinal plants from London, Edinburgh, and Dublin pharmacopoeias. The Cascarilla tree has been valued for centuries for its healing properties, with its bark containing cascarillin resin that is used in herbal medicine. This illustration serves as a reminder of the rich history and importance of botanicals in traditional medicine. Whether admired for its aesthetic appeal or appreciated for its practical uses, this image of the Cascarilla tree is a testament to nature's beauty and bounty.
