The CRC Assistant Rare Books Librarian has been busy cataloguing books from the Edinburgh College of Art Collection again, and has sent a few our way to photograph for upcoming talks and publications.
An amazingly diverse collection from 15th C. Sermons to etchings of Italian landscapes to 19th C. Japanese artistic review magazines and on to detailed plates of British Ferns, each book contains its own wonders.
Glad to see Moore’s British Ferns nature-printed by Bradbury & Evans. How about the Nature-printed Seaweeds to match?
That sounds interesting- we haven’t seen that one in the DIU yet, I’ll have to ask if its coming our way! The book of ferns is stunning, only wish we had time to do more of them!
