Flora of the Cashmere – Gossypium herbaceum + G. arboreum.

This image is taken from Illustrations of the Botany and other Branches of the Natural History of the Himalayan Mountains and of the Flora of Cashmere by J. Forbes Royle, 1839. The book was digitised by Missouri Botanical Gardens and is available through the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

I picked it up from Paul K’s photostream. Paul K (“peacay”) runs one of my favite blogs, Bibliodyssey, from which the image source information above is taken.
