Technical information: Original edition: 1831-1835

Paper Size: 52.7 x 40.6 cm

Source of the original : This Heritage Facsimile Edition print is made from an extremely well-preserved early museum original subscription which has been cared for in the hands of this one owner only – Teylers Museum (the oldest museum of the Netherlands).

Museum Quality: The proofs of our prints are carefully compared and corrected with the originals and the final prints always have the original size. As a result, the naked eye is unable to distinguish the originals from the facsimile prints behind glass.

Durability: To ensure the durability, our facsimiles are printed on 268 g/m acid-free white-edged paper with archive inks. Each facsimile has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every lithographic plate or engraving; every delicate brushstroke of every original ; even the subtle signs of character and patina the paper shows after 150 years.

About the artist: Captain Thomas Brown (1785 – October 8, 1862) was a British naturalist and malacologist.

Born in Perth, Scotland, he was educated at the Edinburgh High School. At the age of twenty, he joined the Forfar and Kineardine Militia, raising to the rank of captain in 1811. When he was quartered in Manchester, he became interested in nature, and edited Oliver Goldsmith's Animated Nature. After his regiment was disbanded, he bought the Fifeshire flax mill. But this burned down before Thomas Brown had the opportunity to insure it. He then started to write books about nature for a living. In 1840 he became curator of the Manchester Museum for twenty-two years.

He wrote several natural history books, a few dealing with conchology. He became a fellow of the Linnean Society, a member of the Wernerian, Kirwanian and Phrenological Societies, and president of the Royal Physical Society.
