A FINE VICTORIAN COLLECTION OF 39 SEAWEED SPECIMENS MOUNTED ONTO DISPLAY CARDS

By Anonymous

Not Appropriate, 1860. No date but the nature of the thick gilt-edged card and manuscript notes suggest Victorian and probably around 1860. 39 sea-weed specimens, each individually mounted, with manuscript latin names below, onto uniform, dark-green display cards (63 x 103mm) with thick gilt edges,and rounded corners. The specimens are generally in a good state of preservation, several with a little lose or rubbing. The paper mounts are variously foxed and marked. A few cards are lightly worn and marked. A very good collection. [Note it would seem that these are the surviving cards of a larger collection, as several cards have residual specimens to the back, which appear to have been transferred from other cards, presumably when the cards were stacked, but none of these cards with missing specimens are extant.]. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket.

FINE VICTORIAL COLLECTION OF MOUNTED SEAWEED SPECIMENS.

By Anon

Unknown: Not Appropriate, 1860. No date but almost certainly Victorian and probably dating to the mid 19th century. 51 fine seaweed specimens mounted on paper and pasted onto the rectos of 28 leafs, most with two specimens per page. Under each specimen (bar one) the species name is given in manuscript. There is evidence of one specimen missing, otherwise those present are particularly fine and generally in very good condition. Unfortunately the external binding is missing and there is no title page, but with two blank leafs at the front and the back. A very nice album with some particularly fine specimens.. First Edition. Unbound. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Small 4to (18.5 x 22.5cm).

Binding very good, lightly rubbed with a few small, professional and inconspicuous repairs to the head/tail of the spine and flap.
