Information: This exceptional folio lithograph is from John James Audubon's. The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. It was part of the Imperial Folio Edition published between 1842 and 1848. Audubon and his son, John Woodhouse, drew all of the quadrupeds in the work.
Victor Gifford Audubon drew the backgrounds for many of the prints. The print is a stone lithograph which features original hand-coloring completed by noted printer James T. Great care was taken in the lithography and hand-coloring of the print to give the animal fur a truly realistic appearance.Audubon worked on the quadrupeds for twelve years and studied the animals in their natural habitats and collected skins. It was the first work of this size done on American quadrupeds and a landmark for natural science in America. Audubon detailed many frontier animals for the first time, and the work helped spark public interest in the natural flora and fauna of America.
