The Nature-Printed British Sea-Weeds
Bradbury, 1859
Size approximately 6" by 9"
NEW! JUNE 2007

THE NATURE-PRINTED BRITISH SEA-WEEDS: A HISTORY, accompanied by figures and dissections, of the Algae of the British Isles, by William Grosart Johnston, F. B. S. E., and Alexander Croall, A. B. S. E., published London, 1859-60 in four volumes by Bradbury and Evans, 11 Bouverie Street. This selection is from Volumes II, III, and IV, 1859-1860. The plates were "nature-printed" by Henry Bradbury using a process which leaves a three-dimensional feel on the paper!. Some minor occasional foxing is characteristic of this series, although most of the plates are still very clean and white. A very few plates with very large images also possess a very minimal margin between the image and the edge of the right margin because of close binding. Each plate also bears its title and plate number. Each print will be accompanied by the original text and a photocopy of the title page, unless otherwise noted.

Bradbury also published a series of nature-printed ferns.
