From Victorian England, 16 bold and wonderfully detailed engraved geological phenomena vignettes, gleaned from an 1858 British natural history reference.
In crisp, clear black and white, 2 pages with a total of 16 engravings featuring 'Natural Scenery, Phenomena, and Geology', with art credits given to P. Fyfe and R. Scott.
The heavy papers are blank on their reverse, show gentle tanning to betray their 155 years, and each page measures 9.75" x 6" (25x15 cm) with each of the 16 vignettes measures approx. 2" (5 cm) square. The corners are sharp and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks.
Very cool studies to frame or to use in your art - ideal for your tag and card creations, for scrap book page making, jewelry making, collage, decoupage.
You are purchasing 2 original 1858 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
