Transcript IPMMPH 4 EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES. IV. i*— View taken under the Cubbeer-Burr, a celebrated Banian Tree in Guzerat. This engraving, from one of larger dimensions, was copied from a drawing made on the spot; and contains about a sixteenth part of that beautiful production, the Ficus Indicus, growing on an island in the river Nerbudda. This umbrageous canopy is supported by three hundred and fifty large trunks, and upwards of three thousand smaller, all traced to one parent stem: the branches extend over a circumference of two thousand feet, and afford shelter to six or seven thousand persons. V. Monkeys in the Concan and Guzerat. The Monkey family delineated in this plate wras drawn from nature, under Cubbeer-Burr, the celebrated banian tree near Baroche, where they abound. There seems very little difference in the generality of these animals in the Concan and Guzerat. Malabar affords several varieties. VI. The Jaca, or Jac Tree and Fruit—The Gardener and the Fruit in just proportion. .The Jac Fruit, (Artocarpus integrifolia, Lin.) often grows to a larger size than is even here exhibited; and, according to the general economy of nature, it has been wisely ordained to grow immediately out of the trunk and strongest boughs of the tree, as it would be impossible for the slender branches to sustain its enormous weight. VII. The Cobra de Capello, Naga, or Hooded Snake of Hindustan. The Serpent represented in this engraving is not of the largest size of the Coluber Naga. The spots and colours vary in this class of serpents, particularly in the spectacle marks in the expanded hood. The Cobra dc Capello selected for this drawing was one of the most common, and one of the highest coloured of its kind.
