Item Description: John T. Bowen, Philadelphia, 1840. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. id#: m3m0130H Title: Audubon's Birds of America Plate 12 Golden Eagle octavo edition Author: John James Audubon and J.B. Chevalier (later Roe Lockwood), Size: 6.5 x 10" Date: 1839-1844 Publisher: Philadelphia, John T. Bowen medium: Hand colored lithograph Listed by Ilsoon Han Condition: very good condition, no tears, best condition on market guaranteed, stamp watermark in lower corner Plate No. 12 Golden Eagle Family II - Falconinae (Falconine Birds) Genus III - Aquila, Briss. (Eagle) John James Audubon (1785 ¿ 1851) is well known for being a naturalist and ornithologist but he is most famous for his monumental work ¿The Birds of America¿, published in London in parts in the years 1827 ¿ 1839. Birds of America included 435 hand colored, etched copper plate engravings in double elephant folio (DEF) size of 27 ½¿ by 39 ½¿, the largest paper size available at the time. Birds of America was sold by subscription and delivered in parts that upon completion would typically be bound by the subscriber in 4 volumes. Before Audubon even completed his final painting for the DEF he had conceived the idea of a miniature edition of Birds of America, in octavo size (6 ½¿ by 10 ½¿), or roughly one eighth the size of the DEF. The subsequent Royal Octavo Edition was first published in the years 1839 ¿ 1844, and again sold by subscription. The Royal Octavo edition was subscribed to and sold originally in 100 installments or fascicles, each consisting of 5 hand colored lithographic plates and corresponding text. Each fascicle included a list of subscribers and the prospectus. The First Royal Octavo Edition was so successful that 6 more editions followed, the last published in 1871. However, the Octavo was much more than just the DEF in miniature. It included 500 plates published in Philadelphia as hand colored lithographs. The plates included many new birds but also reworked plates from the DEF. The Birds of America DEF included many plates with multiple species, in the Octavo edition Audubon included just one species per plate. Audubon also simplified many of the backgrounds for the Octavo edition due to the much smaller size of the paper. In addition to reworking the plates the Royal Octavo Edition was organized by Genus and Species, therefore the plate numbers of the Octavos do not correspond directly to the DEF.
