Collection of algae

310115  Large album of 66 leaves of stronger paper, of which 57 have been decorated on one side with collected algae. JOINED are 4 large loose leaves and 8 smaller ones with single algae. Clothbound, embossed title on the front board. 275x370 mm. Circa 1900.

The alge have been neatly pasted on the original album’s leaves, several ones on each sheet, throughout with a sense of ornament. They have retained over the years the whole charm of their colorful delicateness, and some even show an amazing materiality.

Somewhat dust-soiled in the margins, faint occasional foxing, a few small marginal tears, the algae almost entirely intact with very few defects.
