Description:

Publisher's deluxe binding, red morocco, ornately tooled in gilt on boards and spine, a.e.g.; complete set of 3 volumes, large 8vo; pp. viii, 383, plus 50 plates; [4], 334, plus 50 plates; [2] (half-title p., blank), v, [1], 348, [1], plus 55 plates; collates complete, all volumes with a half-title page. Grand total of 155 hand-colored lithograph plates. Corners gently bumped; a few small scuff marks or bumps on boards, and spine of Vol. I; front joints of Vols. II-III starting. Prelims and terminals of all volumes lightly stained (likely from tape), and contemporary owner's inscription on FFEPs; plate 2 lacks tissue guard, tears in few other tissue guards in Vol. I; faint marginal dust-soiling soiling on first few plates in Vol. II; marginal foxing on roughly half the plates in Vol. III. Overall, internally bright and clean. An extremely handsome set. While putting the finishing touches on the octavo edition of his masterpiece, "The Birds of America," Audubon and his sons began production of "The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America," an elephant folio of 150 lithographs meant to match the lavishness of the "Birds." Unlike the double-elephant folio "Birds," the "Quadrupeds" was produced entirely in the United States, making it the "largest single color plate book to be carried to a successful conclusion [in the U.S.] during the 19th century" (Reese). It was created in collaboration with John Bachman, a pastor who had studied quadrupeds since he was a young man and who was recognized as an authority on the subject in the United States. Audubon had promised Bachman "the very best figures of all our quadrupeds that have ever been thought of or expected," and indeed Bachman was impressed with the results. "Quadrupeds" contains the most sumptuous depiction of the mammals of North America produced, and firmly established Audubon as the age's great natural history artist. Bookseller Inventory #
