Plate 278 Carolina Parrot or Parakeet, Audubon Octavo Print First Edition

This print has been sold.

This print has never been cleaned or restored.  Being over 170 years old it demonstrates characteristics commonly associated with its age and usage, such as finger smudges (spoiling) along the margins and the natural discoloring of the paper (toning).  There are a few blemishes or age spots (foxing).  As an indication of these characteristics for this print please refer to the photos. The edge that was attached to the book is untrimmed. This print exhibits faint text offset.  This print was displayed by it’s prior owner and rather faint matting edges are discernible mostly along the upper and right margins – color portions of the print seem unaffected – see photo.  Remnants of the mounting paper remain at the upper margin of the verso (reverse).  The print paper is in good condition with minimal marks or spots.  Colors are fresh and bright.  Overall, I believe that this print is in fine to very fine condition.

This purchase also includes original text related to the print.

This print measures 6 5/8″ x 10 1/8″
