These beautiful chromolithographs were executed by
Julius Bien & Company for "Bulletin of the United States
Fish Commission for 1903." The fish were mostly
illustrated by A.H. Baldwin, among others, and published
by the U.S. Government Printing Office in 1905.
The article, "The Aquatic Resources of the Hawaiian
Islands," by David Starr Jordan and Barton Warren
Evermann was also included in this bulletin. These
prints are quite scarce, as only 250 copies of the
bulletin were issued.
The U.S. Fish Commission was
established in 1871. Spencer Fullerton Baird, who
was the Assistant Secretary of the Smithsonian
Institution, was the first commissioner, appointed by
President Grant. According to the Archives Center
of the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of
American History, the commission "launched and carried
out the first sustained study of marine biology in the
United States. It was instrumental in the
artificial propagation of fish, thus increasing the
country's fish resources, and concentrating attention on
the preservation of natural resources."
Each print measures approximately 10 1/2 inches by 7 1/2
inches with vibrant color on quality, slightly creamy
paper that is clean, with some faint edge toning. There is no
descriptive text, but a copy of the title page will be provided. The prints are sold in their complete untrimmed state.
