The Sea Bass. Centropristes striatus.

Petrie, J.L. (illus).
Chromolithograph, 10 x 17 inches on sheet 12 x 19 inches. Crease in lower right margin and a 1/4 inch archivally mended edge tear (outside image area), faint soiling in margins, very good condition. 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). Harris had his artist, J.L. Petrie, paint from recently caught fish, and the particulars are noted in the lower left margin: "Specimen (weight 1 lb.) caught and painted at North Long Branch, N.J." with Harris' facsimile signature.
