An album of New Zealand Ferns. large folio 13.5 x 20 inches, 37 full page plates showing the ferns, artistically displayed and identified in a neat hand identifying them by their scientific Latin names. There doesn’t appear to be an identity to the compiler. Some marking to end papers, the ferns are in fine bright condition. Bound in full brown calf gilt title to spine and upper board. Binding tight with no splits or chipping. Although many albums were produced in the latter part of the 19th century for the tourist trade. They are normally a much smaller format. Unusual to find as a folio and in this condition.
