About the object

Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America New York: J.J. Audubon - [V.G. Audubon], 1845-1848., 1848. 3 volumes, Imperial folio (27 x 21 4/8 "). 150 hand-colored lithographs. Contemporary American DELUXE BINDING of full maroon morocco gilt, all edges gilt (recently and expertly rebacked to style, rubbed). First edition. In the 1830s, as the final plates were being completed for John James Audubon's monumental "Birds of America" series, the artist began to gather material for his second and equally ambitious undertaking. Planning to complete the definitive study of American wildlife, Audubon set out to document the animals of North America, and to present them in a format as impressive and sweeping as that he used for his birds. The result of the artist/naturalist's years of field research, travel, and seemingly endless study was the "Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America", the outstanding work on American animals produced in the 19th-century.
