Nighthawk and Whip-poor-will. Louis Agassiz Fuertes.

Nighthawk and Whip-poor-will.

New York: Forest, Fish and Game Commision, 1902. First printing. A fine original chromolithograph printed on heavy coated stock. Quarto (9.5 x 12 inches). Published as part of an unbound portfolio: The Birds of New York State from the Forest, Fish and Game Commission in 1902. Louis Agassiz Fuertes (New York 1874-1927) gained recognition as a fine ornithological painter as an undergraduate student at Cornell University. Through his self-styled skills in observation as a bird collector, aided by his photographic memory, many have liken his talents as a supreme portrayer of America's birds to those of John James Audubon. Fine condition. Item #5275
