    Description

    John James Audubon (1785-1851). Canis Lupus, Linn, Var Rufus. Red Texan Wolf. Male. [Pl. LXXXII]. Drawn from nature by J.J. Audubon. [No place: n.d., circa 1985]. Modern color lithographic reproduction from the Imperial Folio edition of John James Audubon's The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America originally published between 1845 and 1848. The original lithographic version of this print was printed and colored by J. T. Bowen in Philadelphia. Approximate sheet size: 28 x 22 inches. Approximate frame size: 37 x 29 inches. A fine image of the Red Texan Wolf from one of the greatest illustrated natural history works to be produced in America during the nineteenth century, probably only surpassed by Audubon's own The Birds of America.

    This print is being offered as a high-quality decorative print and has not been examined out of the frame. (It is matted, framed and glazed.)

    The Quadrupeds was to be John James Audubon's last work and he enlisted the assistance of his sons in completing the work. It followed the commercially successful octavo edition of his monumental work The Birds of America. A handsome print, in fine condition and ready to enjoy, from America's greatest wildlife artist.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
