.....from one of Edward J. Lowe's rarest books comes these gorgeous, collectible and beautifully suitable for framing wood block engraved color plates.....E. J. Lowe was a famous and quite wealthy naturalist of Great Britain, an esteemed member of the Royal Society, most well-known for his books on ferns.....the prints in this book are rarer than the usual ferns as they were in a book after the first eight volumes, when he discovered that there were many rare ferns he had not covered in the eight volume set.....the paper is a lovely, thick and creamy stock and is not printed on the backs.....perfect framed in groupings, as shown in the pictures, and look equally fabulous in cottage, contemporary, farmhouse, loft or beachy settings.....lends elegance and style to any room from dining to sunporch, living room, den, boudoir to hallway or grand entrance.....

.....this print is the ASPLENIUM CANARIENSE & LOMARIA SUBSERRATUM .....these are in excellent antique condition having some edge buckling where it was bound and some have small corner bends (not from page being turned down but from cover boards failing where book was possibly dropped, very minor), some may have an age spot or tiny edge tear...... matting and framing should hide the worst of it, these are over 100 years old so they will not look new (thank goodness!!).....measures about 6 x 10 inches.....please note you are getting just the print that is named, I have digitally framed it for this listing, it will be sent unmatted, unframed, rigid and flat, the pictures following the print for sale are just for suggestions on use.....the last photo shows how I framed some of my own in vintage shabby chippy wood frames.....they are sent insured (Domestic) and I do refund excess shipping charges if you purchase more than one and it goes over.....

.....blessed be.....the sea witch
