Blunt: ... In England, the same technique was employed by Bradbury, with colour, when he came to make the illustrations for W. Johnstone’s book of British seaweeds and for T. Moore’s superb Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland (1857). For this smaller octavo edition with more plates the same process was involved by which the ferns were printed in green and occasionally finished by additional brown hand-colouring.
