Album of pressed seaweed specimens collected in New South Wales and Victoria
Album of 78 pressed marine algae specimens. The specimens are from specific field locations located around Sydney Harbour and Westernport, southeast of Melbourne. The album leaves have a watermark date of 1859. A possible compiler of the album may be John Bracebridge Wilson (1828-1895), who arrived in Melbourne from England in 1857. Wilson, who became headmaster of Geelong Grammar, was a keen amateur naturalist and noted collector of seaweed specimens.
