MARK CATESBY
F.R.S. (1683 - 1749)    SECOND EDITION.  LONDON 1754.
PLATE 25.  ENGRAVED BY THE AUTHOR, EDITED AND PUBLISHED BY GEORGE EDWARDS.

THE WHITE CROWN PIGEON

Mark Catesby, White Crown Pigeon. Natural History of Carolina, Florida and The Bahama Islands - 1754.
Mouse-over for close-up. Mouse-wheel to zoom.

THE WHITE CROWN PIGEON - Columba capite albo
Now: WHITE CROWNED PIGEON - Patagioenas leucocephala
with
COCOA PLUM - Frutex cotini
Now: Chrysobalanis icaco

The plate title shows "Coco Plum" but the text reads; "Cocoa Plum".  Every individual copy of this plate shows a different colour regime. Accordingly, the colours in the restoration are in strict accordance with Catesby's written description - which tallies with living specimens today - and presumably also reflects the first edition when initially published.
