Henry Noltie

Henry Noltie is a Research Associate of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, where he worked as a taxonomist and curator from 1986 to 2017. His taxonomic work focussed on the monocots of the Sino-Himalayan region, which led to an interest in the history of the Garden’s rich Indian collections. He has written extensively on the botanical drawings made by Indian artists for Scottish East India Company surgeons. Among his works on Indian botanical art are in-depth monographs on East India Company botanists Robert Wight, Hugh Cleghorn, and Alexander Gibson.
