Quadruped Prints by John James Audubon
From the first octavo edition


Prints from John James Audubon and the Reverend John Bachman's The Quadrupeds of North America. New York: V.G. Audubon, 1849. First edition. Royal octavo. Ca. 5 1/4 x 8 1/4. Lithographs, printed with color and finished by hand. Full margins. Very good condition, except as noted.

John James Audubon, perhaps the most famous of American ornithologists, is undeservedly less well known for his wonderful work depicting The Quadrupeds of North America. With the success of his Birds of America, Audubon was inspired to do the same sort of work on the animals, with the assistance of his son, John Woodhouse Audubon. This resulted in the publication of the folio edition of The Viviparous Quadrupedsof North America, illustrating 150 species. As with the work on ornithology, this volume was later issued in octavo size, making it accessible to the general public.
