These rare, intricately detailed prints were made by Henry Bradbury in 1859 using the ingenious nature-printing technique, which used real specimens to make the metal printing plates. They are amazingly life like, capturing the fine detail of each seaweed. The print is an original antique in very good condition considering it is over 150 years old.
