John James Audubon

Audubon First Royal Octavo Edition Antique Prints

Adirondack Retro has a large selection of John James Audubon antique prints in stock and available to purchase. We also offer our prints matted or matted and framed by our professional staff.

John James Audubon (1785-1851) The Hand-Coloured Stone Lithographs of this first royal octavo edition were done by the Philadelphia firm of J.T. Bowen in 1840-1844. The outlines were hand printed from a lithographic stone and each print was hand coloured. It is the only octavo edition in which the prints were prepared under the direct supervision of John James Audubon. We also have several prints from a later "George Lockwood" Octavo Edition. Any prints from this edition will be marked as "Lockwood Edition". 

Many of the Antique & Vintage Prints and Ads that you will find on our website are quite rare and increasingly hard to find, meaning that once they are sold, we may not get another one in stock for quite some time. We have a solution for that! We have created a Hi-Resolution Scan file of all of our print & ads in our inventory. This means that we can "Print-On Demand" any item that you see in our store! Please visit our "Giclee Prints" section of our store to see what is currently available, and if you do not see what you are looking for, please contact us so we can create one for you!

Adirondack Retro guarantees that all of our Antique and Vintage Prints & Ads are authentic from the year stated. We offer our Original Antique Prints and our Limited Edition Giclee Reproduction Prints with the option to include archival matting with your purchase.
