Sir William Jardine
Salmo Albus of Dr. Fleming-Herling of the Solway
Edinburgh: British Salmonidae, 1923. Sheet Dimension: 17 x 24 in. Frame Dimension: 27.25 x 34.25 in. Chromolithograph. Sir William Jardine, the 7th Baronet of Jardine Hall near Lockerbie, Scotland, was the leading authority on salmon and trout in the British Isles. An excellent sportsman, his preeminent knowledge of the species was intimate and personal, and his expertise in the field was so noted that in 1860 he was appointed to the Royal Commission on the Salmon Fisheries of England and Wales. Jardine's estates were located in the fertile fishing areas near the rivers Annan and Tweed, placing him in a perfect position geographically to explore his fascination with salmon and trout. His independent research, and artistic inclinations, culminated in the finest and most comprehensive monograph on these fish ever produced in the British Isles, and perhaps in the world, British Salmonidae.
