Description

    William Grosart Johnstone and Alexander Croall. The Nature-Printed British Sea-Weeds. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1859-1860. First edition. Complete in four octavo volumes. Numerous colored engravings throughout. Uniformly bound in publisher's green cloth stamped in blind with gilt titles. Front gathering of volume one sprung, with all bindings somewhat shaken. Scattered foxing throughout.
    This four volume set has considerable importance - not just in the study of British Sea-Weeds, but is also an excellent example of color "nature-printing" in which the plants were pressed into a soft lead plate making an impression that was then used in manufacturing the printing plate. This technique, invented by Louis Auer in Vienna, was brought to England by Henry Bradbury. This work is his second use of this technique.
