TROCHETIOPSIS MELANOXYLON, the dwarf eb- ony or St Helena ebony, of the is- land of Saint Hele- na is now extinct in the wild. It was last seen when it was collected by Banks and Solander in 1771 on Cook’s rst voyage. It may once have covered many of the driest slopes of Saint Helena, but appears to have been one of the rst casualties of the introduc- tion of the domestic goat by the Portuguese sailors soon after the discovery of Saint Helena in 1502. Unique edition, signed and numerated by the artist. Black box measuring 16.5cm x 16.5cm x 3.5cm
