Albert G. Nye. Sea Mosses from the Pacific Coast. San Francisco, 1880.
Tall octavo with twenty-six mounted specimens. No text as this was a personal project of Nye's.
Contemporary half brown morocco over brown cloth, gilt cover lettering, spine and leather edge gilt-ruled. Some wear to extremities but overall a very handsome presentation.
Extremely fine and delicate examples of West Coast sea mosses and very unusual in that none have become broken or detached. Albert Nye, a California artist, was born in Massachusetts and moved to San Francisco in the 1870s. After the earthquake he removed to Oakland where he died in 1922.
