The Auction

One hundred and fifty original Havell Edition double elephant folio-sized aquatint engravings, many in pristine condition, from Audubon's Birds in America will be sold along with a stunning collection of Audubon's compelling Quadrupeds in an event celebrating the beauty of nature. Were the Audubons on their own not sufficiently compelling, the auction will also include an assortment of fine, treasured Botanical Prints by Pierre-Joseph Redoute.
