Ginkgo branch wearing seeds (1767): a watercolour of Ginkgo by a Chinese artist working for John Bradby Blake in Canton, China. Blake was in service of the British East India Trading Company. He sent home detailed botanical illustrations of Chinese plants. This is probably the first Western documentation of Ginkgo from its native China.
