We are offering for sale some fossil prints believed to have been taken from the collection of English geology's co-founder, Rev Joseph Townsend, originally published in The Character of Moses as an Historian, Recording Events from the Creation to the Deluge, 1813. The prints were offered to The Friends of Hugh Miller in their current condition; we think they were printers' proofs rather than prints taken from a copy of Townsend's book (a practice we do not condone). They came without any indication of what the fossils are, the text on the prints relates to author and printer. The images below were made from scans and are slightly darker than the originals. There is some foxing and some folding on some of the prints, which can be seen in the images.
They are priced at £12 each including p & p.
