    Texan Skunk from the First Edition of Audubon's Quadrupeds

    John James Audubon. "Mephitis Mesoleuca, Licht. Texan Skunk. Natural Size" [Plate LIII from The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America]. Philadelphia: T. Bowen, 1845.

    Hand-colored lithograph on a Columbier folio sheet (27.375 x 21.5 inches; 695 x 546 mm.).

    Nineteenth century wove paper. Light toning. Uneven, darker toning marks the edges of an old mat (mat removed). Top edge with old adhesive remnants. Short tears around edges repaired with tape on verso. A bit of loss to top right corner, and a smaller chip to lower edge. Overall, a very good copy that will display nicely behind glass in a new mat and frame.
