Maker: Henry Bradbury.
Antique color seaweed print by Henry Bradbury, 1859. This detailed print was created using the unique "nature-printed" process that was developed by the Austrian Alois Auer and perfected by Henry Bradbury. In this process a plant is pressed into a plate of soft lead, leaving an impression from which an electrotype is made. The prints are amazingly true to nature, capturing the fine detail of each seaweed. They are printed in a range of colors, with up to three colors sometimes combined on one plate. Page size is approx. 9.25 x 6 inches. Very good antique condition.
