The Birds of America, Royal Octavo Edition
Following the success of his large folio, Audubon offered his birds in a miniature or Royal Octavo Edition which was lithographed and hand-colored in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during 1840-44 by J.T. Bowen. These prints are originals, and Audubon issued the prints in a series by species. They were issued in 100 parts of 5, and eventually the customer subscriber bound them into 7 volumes of books. Audubon based these prints on his folio drawings but often varied them due to the smaller images. Each plate contains a single species and he also added some new species which had been discovered out West and had not reached him in time to be included in the folio work. These prints represent some of the finest hand-coloring work done in America
