Plate XIII Townsend's Cormorant (Phalacrocorax townsendii); The Double-crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax dipophus)

By Studer, Jacob Henry. Jasper, Theodore (Illus.).

New York:: Jacob H. Studer & Co.,, 1881.. First printing. Fine . Fine original Chromolithograph. Folio. 11.25 x 14.5 inches, archivally French matted sized 16 x 20 inches. In his popular ornithology created to satify nineteenth century America's burgeoning interest in birding, the editor and publisher Jacob Henry Studer (Columbus, Ohio 1840-1904) utilized chromolithography as an affordable means of capturing both the brilliant plumage and the subtle shading of the birds depicted in their natural surroundings after paintings by Theodore Jasper, AMMD and amateur ornithologist. Studer and Jasper followed the traditions of John James Audubon (1770-1851) and Alexander Wilson (1766-1813) in an effort to document and render all species of birds found in nineteenth century North America. Drawing from accounts of not only Audubon and Wilson- both supreme naturalists in their own right- but also the most eminent nature writers of the day, the insightful text which accompanies the plate provides a thorough and lively account of the native species and the early American landscape. Although inspired by the artistry and genius of John James Audubon, Studer and Jasper's compositions are often populated with a multitude of birds rendered in a flat two-dimensional style more reminiscent of the engravings by Alexander Wilson in his introductory work on America's birds: American Ornithology, or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States, Philadelphia 1808-14. Anker p.80; Bennett p.63; Fine Bird Books p.145; Nissen IVB 473; Wood p.406; Zimmer p.333. Matted in Rag Board

By Studer, Jacob Henry. Jasper, Theodore (Illus.).

New York:: Jacob H. Studer & Co.,, 1881.. First printing. Fine . Fine original Chromolithograph. Folio. 11.25 x 14.5 inches, archivally French matted sized 16 x 20 inches. In his popular ornithology the editor and publisher Jacob Henry Studer (Columbus, Ohio 1840-1904) utilized chromolithography as an affordable means of capturing both the brilliant plumage and the subtle shading of the birds depicted in their natural surroundings after paintings by Theodore Jasper, AMMD and amateur ornithologist. Studer and Jasper followed the traditions of John James Audubon (1770-1851) and Alexander Wilson (1766-1813) in an effort to document and render all species of birds found in nineteenth century North America. Drawing from accounts of not only Audubon and Wilson- both supreme naturalists in their own right- but also the most eminent nature writers of the day, the insightful text which accompanies the plate provides a thorough and lively account of the native species and the early American landscape. Although inspired by the artistry and genius of John James Audubon, Studer and Jasper's compositions are often populated with a multitude of birds rendered in a flat two-dimensional style more reminiscent of the engravings by Alexander Wilson in his introductory work on America's birds: American Ornithology, or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States, Philadelphia 1808-14. Anker p.80; Bennett p.63; Fine Bird Books p.145; Nissen IVB 473; Wood p.406; Zimmer p.333. Matted in Rag Board
