The Fata Morgana NP24 $135
We are delighted to offer this selection of prints
from the work entitled Thirty Plates Illustrative of
Natural Phenomena, Etc. This book includes vividly
hand colored illustrations of various natural phenomena,
including aurora borealis, Will-o’-the-Wisp, and
volcanoes. It was published by the Society for Promoting
Christian Knowledge in 1846. The Society was founded in
1698 as part of the Church of England and produced
theological works, as well as books on popular science,
travel, biography, and fiction.
The condition of these prints is excellent. The paper is
a beautiful cream with little or no foxing, as shown.
Each print measures approximately 10 ¾ inches wide by 13
½ inches long with an entrancing description of each
phenomenon as understood by the science of the day.
These prints again represent the convergence of science
and art which produced so many highly decorative and
whimsical works. The photos are very accurate, so please
