Imperial Folio of Quadrupeds

Audubon is widely known and appreciated for his work with birds. But he also produced an ambitious and worthy folio of mammals. This edition was also reproduced in the smaller octavo size.

This edition was printed between 1843 and 1848.

Known as the Imperial Folio Quadrupeds, this edition was created using lithography. Coloring was done by a Philadelphia lithographer named J.T Bowen.
