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 fern. The print is an original antique on thick paper and is in good condition. Some of the plates have faint foxing.
