Chromolithograph, 10 x 17 inches on sheet 12 x 19 inches. Abraded area in image at lower right (inpainted), creasing to lower right margin, light soiling to margins. A chromolithograph of the highest quality, capturing the subtle coloration of the fish portrayed, produced for William Harris' publication "The Fishes Of North America" which was published in 1898 (Bennett, American Nineteenth Century Color Plate Books p.51).

Petrie, paint from recently caught fish, and the particulars are noted in the lower left margin: "Specimen (weight 1/4 lb.) caught and painted at North Long Branch, N.J." with Harris' facsimile signature.
