ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE BIRDS OF CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, OREGON, BRITISH AND RUSSIAN AMERICA.

 INTENDED TO CONTAIN DESCRIPTIONS AND FIGURES OF ALL NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS NOT GIVEN BY FORMER AMERICAN AUTHORS, AND A GENERAL SYNOPSIS OF NORTH AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY 

Fifty hand-colored lithographed plates on compact disc. 

By JOHN CASSIN. 

1856




This CD presents 50 high resolution digital BMP images from the 1856 edition of ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE BIRDS OF CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, OREGON, BRITISH AND RUSSIAN AMERICA.



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. This web image is electronically watermarked, the CD images are not.

John Cassin (September 6, 1813 - January 10, 1869) was an American ornithologist. He is considered to be one of the giants of American ornithology, describing 198 birds not previously mentioned by Alexander Wilson and John James Audubon. Fifty hand-colored lithographed plates, including frontispiece, after George G. White by Wm. E. Hitchcock, printed and colored by J.T. Bowen. Originally issued in ten parts between 1853 and 1855 Cassin intended his work to supplement that of Audubon. He had originally suggested to Audubon's sons a plan for extending the octavo edition of Audubon's The Birds of America, but difficulty concerning credit on the title page sank the scheme, and Cassin proceeded with his own publication. Cassin used the same lithographer as the Audubons, J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia, to produce the beautiful plates of American birds, consisting entirely of western species that Audubon had never observed. Cassin was a trained scientist as well as careful artist and observer, and his work took American ornithology to a new level of technical competence, becoming the first American bird book to use trinomial nomenclature. Hitchcock, who transferred White’s drawings to stone, and Bowen, who printed and colored them, had both worked extensively on that earlier work, as well as on the octavo edition of Audubon and Bachman's Quadrupeds of North America. Ayer/Zimmer, pp. 124-125 (first edition). Copenhagen/Anker 92 (first edition). Fine Bird Books, p. 64 (first edition). McGill/Wood, p. 281. Nissen, IVB, 173
