NESTS AND EGGS OF BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. 1882 54 FINE CHROMOLITHOGRAPH IMAGES ON COMPACT DISC. Drawings done by Mr. Edwin Sheppard. By Thomas G. Gentry Published by J.A.Wagenseller: Philadelphia


This CD disc presents 54 high-resolution digital BMP images from the 1882 edition of NESTS AND EGGS OF BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. These images can be printed directly from the CD or imported to Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, PaintShop Pro, Adobe PhotoDelux, PrintMaster and other popular painting and drawing programs and printed on quality inkjet paper producing stunning results suitable for framing. Or for designing your own greeting cards, posters, brochures and calendars.

The print out size is the same size as the originals, if not enlarged or reduced. I have found that these Images print best on Ink Jet matte paper. When printed directly from the CD, they are the actual size. (The same as the originals) and the result is an awesome print almost indistinguishable as a reprint, even when using a relatively inexpensive home ink jet printer.


This CD contains the entire collection of original images as well as a set which has been digitally enhanced in the transfer to CD as in the scan below. These web images are electronically watermarked, the CD images are not.


Complete with the intricately colored chromolithographed frontispiece portrait title page and 54 beautifully illustrated full-page color plates. Whitman Bennett, author of A Practical Guide to American Nineteenth Century Color Plate Books (1949), had this to say of this work, "Drawings done chiefly by Mr. Edwin Sheppard of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, acknowledged as the best ornithological artist in America" (p. 44).
Gentry's book, originally published in 25 parts from 1880-82, was a popular chronicle of the nesting habits of 50 species of North American birds. The vivid plates have been digitally enhanced in the transfer to CD. The plates depict nests, eggs, and the birds themselves. Ayer, 240. Fine Bird Books 76.
