The Fern Garden, How to Make, Keep, and Enjoy It; or, Fern Culture Made Easy

by Shirley Hibbard

London: Published by by Groombridge and Sons, 5 Paternoster Row
Printed by J.E. Adlard, Bartholomew Close
MDCCCLXX (1870)

Original antique fern chromolithograph (color lithograph) prints
and black and white wood engravings over 140 years old.

These make wonderful wall groupings of 3, 5, 7 or more—fill the whole wall with these attractive yet inexpensive fern prints!

Sheet size is approximately 4.5 x 7.125 inches (approximately 11.5 x 18 cm)

Condition is generally excellent—the paper is softly age-toned to a creamy antique off-white color, with typical light browning around edges of paper. A few plates may have minor foxing, so please have a look at the enlargements to assess the condition of each print.
