Description: Elephant folio bird print. Color offset lithograph. Page measures 39.5" x 26.5".

Comments: Beautiful print of warblers from first facsimile edition. This edition, which was published from the original plates 135 years after their creation, recreates the entire set of 435 images in their original double elephant folio format. The model for these images was an original set of Havell engravings, provided by Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, Holland. Paper bears the authenticating watermark. Audubon (1785-1851) was an American naturalist, painter and ornithologist. One of the most famous American natural history artists, Audubon did extensive field work studying birds before painting them. Please visit our gallery for more Audubon prints.

Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
