The scans were made from hand colored antique lithographs.
They were in excellent condition and were ~10 x 6.3 inches (25.5 cm x 16 cm). David Seth Smith's work on parakeets was one of the last fine bird books illustrated with hand-coloring, and was published in 1903. The illustrations were by some of the best bird artists, such as Frohawk, Goodchild, Gronvold, and Renaut. The lithographs were made by Mintern Brothers (famous for printing many of John Gould's bird prints).
