An Album of New Zealand and Australian Fern Samples.
c.1900]. . Folio, (120) leaves, containing 156 samples neatly mounted to rectos, with all but a handful at the end labelled in a late Victorian hand. Black half morocco, joints neatly restored. A unique collection of fern samples, expertly laid out and labelled with their binomial names. As far as can be ascertained perhaps a third are native to New Zealand, with another fifth unique to Australia; the remainder being found more widely but presumably collected on the same tour through Australasia. There are no inscriptions to give more detailed information about the origins of the collection. A full list of the samples is available on request.
