Birds of Prey, plates #4 - 26


Hand Colored Plates
Lockwood Octavo Edition, 1870-71
6-3/4" x 10-1/2"

Of the seven editions of Audubon's Royal Octavo Birds of America perhaps the least circulated and most rare is the seventh edition, published by the George Lockwood Company, 1870-71. while exact publication numbers are not known, this edition is rare and difficult to find. With few exceptions, the images from this seventh and final edition are the same as those in the 1840-41 first edition. Most prints have 'halo' or rectangular printed backgrounds, often in light beige or light blue, distinguishing them from the first edition (A few 1st edition prints also have a similar rectangular background.) These prints are otherwise hand-colored (flora and fauna) on fine wove paper. The original printing stones were destroyed after this edition, ensuring no further editions would issue.
