Plate 220 Boat-Tailed Grackle, Audubon Octavo 1840 First Edition

$ 250 $ 135

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 and has retained some of its glue binding – see photo.  The paper is in good condition with few noticeable marks or spots and faint text offset.  There are two light creases along the margin.  These creases appear much more pronounced in the scan.  Colors are fresh and vibrant.  Overall, I believe that this print is in very fine condition.

Some original text belonging to this image is included with this offer – see photo.

This print measures 6 5/8″ x 10 1/8″
