This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J.F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W.H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J.D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker’s description. This superb tree, which forms so conspicuous a feature in the scenery and vegetation of Dorjiling, was chosen by Dr Thomson and myself to commemorate the eminent services of our friend Dr Campbell, Resident at Dorjiling, in connection with the rise and progress of that important Sanatorium, as also his many contributions to our knowledge of the geography and natural productions, arts, manufactures, and races of the Nepal and Sikkim Himalaya.
