The idea that a collection of ascertained facts regarding the uses of Indian plants is still a desideratum, led to the compilation of the following pages. A vast quantity of miscellaneous matter is scattered throughout the pages of Rheede, Ainslie, Roxburgh, Wallich, Wight, Royle and Others who have written on the subject of Indian botany; and it frequently occurred to me, that were an attempt made to collect in a single volume the various notices on the chief uses of plants as recorded in their works, it would form a some-what useful and desirable handbook to a knowledge of our botanical resources. The short description, which it is hoped are sufficient to identify the plants enumerated, are taken from the best authorities. Printed Pages: 528.
