British Ferns Title Page BRF202 $NFS
Each print measures approximately 6 inches wide by 9 1/2 inches long

We are delighted to offer a selection of prints from “The Nature-Printed British Ferns” 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 fern without the interpretation of an engraver or artist.

Each print is clean & still white, with minor occasional foxing, measuring approximately 6 inches wide by 9 1/2 inches long. A copy of the title page is included with each print. 

The beauty of the ferns 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 photograph can completely capture the subtle detail, but the pictures provided are as accurate as possible, so please inspect them carefully.
