set of 12 seaweed nature prints

INGLIS HALL ANTIQUES
A set of 12 rare nature prints of seaweed by Henry Bradbury c1855. Eeach print is framed with hand painted paper using the french passe-partout technique. Eeach print is 23.5 cm tall by by 15.6 cm wide. Henry Riley Bradbury (1829–1860) was an English writer and printer. The innovative technique of nature printing was invented by Alois Auer and Andreas Worring in 1852 and improved by Bradbury. The technique consisted of pressing a leafy specimen onto a thin, soft lead plate, leaving an intaglio impression with very fine detail. Bradbury had studied Auer's discovery in Vienna and had patented his own version in London, without acknowledging that the idea had originated with Auer. A controversy followed.
