1700s Vintage Paper Pack

1700s Vintage Paper Pack

I traveled 1500 miles to scan these incredibly rare papers from the 1700s in an agricultural archive. They’re from the very first edition of Curtis’s Botanical Magazine (1787), and not only do the pages have really great foxing and coloration, but you can also see the original botanical text showing through to varying degrees.

Details: • Scanned at 600-1000 ppi, all 20 pages are cleanly cropped to 11×17-inch JPGs (3300×5100 pixels) • Crops include different selects from four original scanned pages
