About the Book

An increasing demand for everything relating to the vegetable production of India has of late years been the means of eliciting from various quarters much useful information, tending to a more extensive acquaintance with as well as improvement of the natural resources of the country.

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, Ainsile, Roxburgh, Royle, Wight 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 plants as recorded in their works it would form a somewhat 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.

In this book the author also given a nomenclature of the native names of the plants described.
