Electrotypes - Artist's stamp - 1859

Seven Henry Bradbury Original Nature-Printed Seaweeds 1859. (Electrotypes)
These detailed prints were made using the so-called "nature printed process" developed by Austrian Alois Auer which was later improved by Henry Bradbury. A plant is pressed into a plate of soft lead, leaving behind a print of which an electrotype is then made. The prints made in this way are very lifelike, capturing the fine details of the seaweed. Without the engraver or artist giving it his own interpretation. They are printed in a colour range where sometimes three colours are combined in 1 print.
The following algae are on the prints:
- Phyllophora palmettoides
- Phyllophora brodiaei
- Gloiosipphonia capillaris
- Halymenia ligulata
- Schizymenia Dubyi
- Phyllophora rubens
- Ceramium acanthonotum
