Mr. Wellesley A. Parker, whose success throughout the world in art matters, is well known has been specially employed to superintend the pictorial department of this work. Of the Crisp process, which is to be used, the following extract from a well known paper speaks well for it.
The Albany, N. Y. Evening Journal says:
New Printing Process.—People unacquainted with the wonderful strides that have been made in Australia in printing, and the general depicting of nature in its most beautiful moods, have little idea of the complimentary and deserving success that Messrs. F. W. Niven and Co. of Ballarat, Australia have attained in their new “Crisp Photo” Process. We have been shown by Mr. Wellesley Parker, who is visiting us, samples of this new firm’s beautiful process. The book that has lately run into three editions, of 5000 each, of “Syracuse Illustrated” is beyond compare the most exquisite series of views ever appearing in the direction of printing. Episodes of the old days, and scenes of the beauties of the gardens of the city, are scattered throughout, interented with pictures of well-known citizens, that for fidelity rival any photograph that is at present produced. Every credit is due to Australia, who has taken the lead in this innovation.
Intersperced through the book will be pages devoted to the estaousnments or leading wholesale and retail merchants. Not only will the exteriors of the buildings be shown, but the interiors will come out with great fidelity, showing every branch of the business in actual working order, thus giving to many a glimpse behind the scenes of the various details involved in producing the articles that they purchase in the showroom or at the counter. The first issue of “The Hawaiian Revolution” is to be 5000.
The principal industries and business establishments will be visited by Mr. Parker, who is now in this city, on behalf of the Publishers, and arrangements made by which the actual details of the various branches of the businesses will be represented pictorially. In addition, it is the desire of the Publishers to add to the completeness of the work by prevailing upon citizens who have handsome residences or grounds, to arrange with Mr. Parker for their appearance in its pages.
