The work of John James Audubon. These antique prints are a part of American history. These are original antique hand colored lithographs.  We are pleased to offer these hand colored antique Audubon squirrel prints.  They come from the First Royal Octavo Edition Published by Audubon in Philadelphia in 1844. Each antique print measures 7 x 10 1/2″.  Drawn from nature by John Woodhouse Audubon. Drawn on stone lithograph by William E. Hitchcock. Lithographed, printed and colored by J.T. Bowen, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1844. The Quadrupeds of North America, which encompassed a total of 150 native American four legged or quadruped mammals individually documented and portrayed in their land natural settings. This was a collaborative work between very famous 19th Century American painters: John James Audubon, his two sons John Woodhouse Audubon and Victor Gifford Audubon and the naturalist Reverend John Bachman. They documented and portrayed what J.J. Audubon considered a dwindling resource: the native mammals set among the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited America landscape. The team traveled westward from Audubon’s home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark. From the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories, now Alaska, southward to Mexico. This monumental journey was extremely hard on the wildlife team, and therefore influenced the compositions to some degree. Still though, these are a pertinant record of North American Mammals. The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife classic: an essential and timeless contribution to both American Culture and the Art of American Wildlife Painting. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: “We have at last have a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens. the Bible of Nature!” This information was sourced from the book entitled: John James Audubon in the West. Published in 2000 in New York by Henry H. Abrams.
