1781-1783 Continental Flags

ZIP File

Unfurl this flag with your late-war American Revolution troops! This flag is based on one that decorates the canton of Major Sebastian Bauman’s map of Yorktown. (Illustration included in download) The file labelled “U.S. Canton flag 1 obverse” is an exact tracing of Bauman’s illustration.  A similar flag is illustrated by Jonathan Trumbull, in his painting “Presentation to Congress by David Humphreys of the Flags surrendered at Yorktown.” (also included in download) Though I have not had the opportunity to examine the painting itself, Trumbull’s flag appears to have two letters within the canton.  Following Bauman’s illustration, but adding a U gives the result seen in “U.S. Canton flag 2 obverse.”  The color scheme for this flag is taken from a color image of Trumbull’s painting.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
