Description

This is a complete scan of Volume 8 of Transactions of the Linnean Society of London, published in 1807.

It was created by the following process:

  1. Download high quality jpeg page images from the Biodiversity Heritage Library;
  2. Clean pages using ImageMagick. A simple-minded automatic technique was used, that removed the browning of the paper, and improved the visibility of text, but greatly degraded the quality of the plates. Non-retouched images of the plates and title page have been uploaded separately.
  3. Convert to DjVu, and aggregate into a multi-page document, using DjVuLibre. The DjVu encoding is necessarily quite low quality, in order to ensure a file less than the current Wikimedia Commons upload limit of 20MB. If and when this limit increases, a higher quality version will be uploaded.

(Reusing this file)
This image is in the public domain because it is a mere mechanical scan or photocopy of a public domain original, or – from the available evidence – is so similar to such a scan or photocopy that no copyright protection can be expected to arise. The original itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 100 years or fewer.


Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States.


This tag is designed for use where there may be a need to assert that any enhancements (eg brightness, contrast, colour-matching, sharpening) are in themselves insufficiently creative to generate a new copyright. It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For known raw unenhanced scans you can use an appropriate {{PD-old}} tag instead. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.

Note: This tag applies to scans and photocopies only. For photographs of public domain originals taken from afar, {{PD-Art}} may be applicable. See Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
Other versions

Non-retouched images of the plates and title page have been uploaded separately.
