We have scoured the print world for this selection of rare prints from “The Nature-Printed British Sea-Weeds” by Bradbury and Evans, published in 1859. These intricately detailed prints were created using the “nature-printed” process developed by the Austrian Alois Auer and perfected by Henry Bradbury. In this unique process a plant is pressed into a plate of soft lead, leaving an impression from which an electrotype is made. The resultant prints are incredibly life like and true to nature, capturing the fine detail of each seaweed without the interpretation of an engraver or artist. They are printed in a range of colors, with three colors sometimes combined on one plate. Each print measures approximately 6 inches wide by 9 ½ inches long. Please note there is foxing in some, as is often found with this work, and which is clearly shown.

A copy of the title page is included with each print.

The beauty of the seaweeds is startling, as it is nature printing at its very pinnacle. On many of the prints, it is possible to feel the raised surface of the inks used. No web scan can completely capture the subtle detail, but the pictures provided are as accurate as possible, so please inspect them carefully.
