John James Audubon’s last major accomplishment was producing 150 drawings of North American animals, known as Quadrupeds. Having depicted all the known birds of North America, but still lured by his love of nature and art, he began on his last drawing expedition up the Missouri River in the summer of 1843. With the aid of his son, John Woodhouse Audubon, he created the first attempt ever to document and depict all the mammals of North America. First came the elephant folio edition, then came the octavo edition, which theses hares and rabbits come from. These are American water colored lithographs of rabbits and hares. Each print measures @ 7×10″ What a great gift for a bunny lover!
