The William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné

Master record for Schaaf no. 4268

Leaf of a plant

Attributed to: William Henry Fox Talbot

Keywords: Botany

The dark marks around the stem of the leaf are the result of pressure from the cover glass, used to make sure the leaf makes good contact with the photosensitive paper. That pressure has caused fluid to leak from the leaf and its stem, causing the dark marks in the photograph around the leaf.
