I've just managed to get hold of this rather nice 1833 antique print of various cephs off an internet site. I think it'll look quite nice in a frame in my front room.
Quite so, Moog. The nautiloid shapes do recall the supercharger on a Spit's Merlin.The Moog said:Lovely, I think it will go nicely in between the spitfire piccie and the portrait of Sir Thomas More, (or whoever it is).
Well, running left to right in rows we have listed:Clem said:Phil, what species are shown on that there print? Can you give us a close-up on the legend?
If you get a chance you should talk to someone who deals in old books/prints and maybe get them mounted on acid free paper. Those old prints crumble away if they're not preserved properly. I hear you about framing costs. Sooo expensive.I'm afraid I now have standard store-built pine frames for all three prints; I could not really afford that sort of money for a hand crafted frame. Well, I can always change the frame in the future...
