1 Title:   Botanical and Natural History Print Collection  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Audubon, John James, 1785-1851  
  Dates:   1840-1849  
The collection consists of approximately 400 original color prints by a number of important 19th century naturalists. The majority of the collection comes from John James Audubon's The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America and Pierre-Joseph Redoutés Les Liliacées, Les Roses and "Choix des plus Belles Fleurs," as well as several prints from M.A. Burnett's Plantae Utiliores, or Illustrations of Useful Plants, Employed in the Arts and Medicine, Part III. The collection also includes a Currier and Ives print and a handful of botanical and natural themed prints by other artists including Wilkes, Curtis, and Gould. In addition are over a dozen reference books, highlighting eight natural history reference books, many of which contain published copies of the originals in the collection. Though the prints originate from published works, none of the works represented here have a complete set of plates. For example, in Series 3 Prints from Redoute's Les Liliaces, there are only a scant few prints from Volume 1, whereas the collection holds many more plates from Les Liliaces Volume 8, if still not all of them. In several cases there are duplicate copies of identical prints; this has been noted in the listing where it occurs.
