Lot 1004    

Audubon Print, Plate 391, Summer or Wood Duck,
2004, Spring Americana and Decorative Arts, May 22
chromolithograph of 2 males and 2 females. In a modern frame; 26.5" x 19.5" (image only), 42" x 29" (w/frame). From the 1860 Julius Bien edition of Audubon's Birds of America. This edition took advantage of chromolithography to produce a less expensive version of life-size images. The outbreak of the Civil War prevented completion of the edition--only 105 sheets and 150 images were produced, making these prints even more rare than the original 1827-1838 Havell double elephant folio edition.

Condition:  
Even toning, minor foxing, not removed from frame for examination; VG-.
