In 1994 the original watercolor of Mark Catesby, housed in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle, were cIeaned and conserved. At the same time, facsimiles of the 263 original watercolors were prepared using a process called stochatic lithography, resulting in copies almost indistinguishable from the original . Fifty sets were produced before the plates were detroyed. One set belongs to the Special and Area Studies Collection of th George Smathers Libraries at th University of Florida. Forty of those prints make up the current exhibition traveling through Florida.
