EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning handcoloured copperplate engraving depicts the Red Cinchona and Quina, specifically identified as Cinchona pubescens (syn. Cinchona succirubra), a significant botanical discovery in the medicinal world. The image is taken from Dr. Willibald Artus' Handbook of all medical-pharmaceutical plants, published in Jena, Germany, in 1876. The Red Cinchona tree, native to South America, is renowned for its medicinal properties. The bark of the tree contains alkaloids, most notably quinine, which was first extracted in the late 16th century by the Quechua people of Peru. Quinine has been used for centuries to treat malaria, a mosquito-borne disease that has plagued humanity for millennia. The Quina plant, also known as Cinchona quina or Cinchona officinalis, is shown in the lower left corner of the engraving. It is a close relative of the Red Cinchona and is also native to South America. Quina contains quinidine, another alkaloid with therapeutic properties, particularly for the treatment of heart conditions. The intricate detail and vibrant colours of this botanical illustration provide an accurate representation of the Red Cinchona and Quina, allowing for easy identification and study. The handcoloured copperplate engraving technique was a popular method for producing botanical illustrations during the 19th century, as it allowed for a high level of detail and precision. This beautiful illustration serves as a testament to the importance of botanical discovery and the role it plays in advancing medical knowledge and improving human health. The Red Cinchona and Quina remain essential components of modern medicine, with quinine still used to treat malaria and quinidine used to treat heart conditions.
