Audubon Octavo First and Later Edition Quadruped Prints
Following the successful publication of Audubon's Imperial Folio edition of the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, the Audubon family proceeded to publish the more affordable Octavo edition of the Quadrupeds (1849-1871) consisting of 155 plates. Audubon's sons (John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford) used camera lucida to reduce the images on the Imperial Folio Quadrupeds to the octavo size (about 10" x 6 1/2"). The first Octavo edition of the Quadrupeds of North America was published during 1849-1854. This gallery presents some prints from the Octavo 1st and 2nd editions. These are all hand-colored stone lithographs. Please contact us if interested in these prints.
