1870. This well-known lithograph is from the work Birds of America by John James Audubon, which has been printed in many editions. This print is from the 7th printing conducted by Audubon and Roe Lockwood in 1870-1871. Lockwood’s involvement has led this edition to commonly be known as the Lockwood edition. Other than the colored backgrounds, which were added to the post-first editions, the main images on these prints are, for the most part, identical to those of the First edition and feature hand coloring. J.T. Bowen was lithographer for the work, which was published in Philadelphia. These are some of the best examples of hand-colored work in America and are highly collectible. They are on fine heavy stock paper measuring 6 7/8 x 10 ½ inches. Double matted in wood frame. #43662. Fine.
