Description
AUDUBON, John James and the Reverend John Bachman; "The Quadrupeds of North America". New York: V.G. Audubon, 1849-54. First edition. Royal octavo. 5 1/4" x 8 1/4". Original full calf binding, raised spine with gilt applied labels, marbled endpapers and edges, bookplate of Frank Herrold Sellers, Harvard Class of 1888. Lithographs, printed with color and finished by hand. Full margins. Very good condition, minor wear to binding.
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 Quadrupeds of 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.
