Small folio volume containing 46 specimens of pressed seaweed mounted on thick white paper and laid down on album leaves. A few of the specimens are annotated with botanical names but most are not. Brown paper covered boards with 'Marine Algae' in watercolour letters to the upper board. The book has been re-backed with brown cloth and had new endpapers inserted making the volume robustly usable. An interesting marine herbarium that stems from the Victorian fascination with seaweed.
