The Royal Octavo edition of Audubon’s Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America captures his iconic images of North American mammals in miniature form.

First published between 1849 and 1854, these antique original lithographs were printed and hand-colored by the studio of distinguished Philadelphia printmaker John T. Bowen. The smaller Octavo version of Audubon’s folio was popular for its relative affordability and portable scale.
