Transcript EXPLANATION OF THE PLATES, 13 the plumage is extremely correct: it is of the Bustard genus, and esteemed by epicures to be far superior in flavour to the black partridge, or any other bird introduced at the English tables in India. XL. The Sahras, or Demoiselle of Guzerat. Ardea Wirgo. This bird, drawn from nature, is particularly described, and a singular anecdote related of it, in the Memoirs, P. 503, Vol. I. The Sahras and Cullum, a similar bird, are very common in many parts of Guzerat, and in their most erect posture generally exceed five feet in height. XLI. The Green Pigeon and Cur- Champa. The bird in the plate is represented about half the natural size ; it is of beautiful plumage, and highly flavoured.

XLIL y Blue Locust, Thorny-crested Caterpillar, and variegated Mimosa, in Guzerat. These three curious and beautiful specimens in the Natural History of Guzerat are particularly described in different excursions in that province. They are delineated in the exact size and colours of nature, except in the lively azure of the locust, which it would be difficult for art to imitate.

XLIIL Skeleton Mantis, and Oil Plant of Guzerat. There is as great a variety of plants cultivated for the oil which is expressed from their seeds as there is of the Mantis tribe of insects, in Guzerat. The plant here delineated is one of the most delicate of its i/
