John James Audubon (1765-1851), after coming to America around 1803 would become a noted naturalist and artist. His most well known work, The Birds of America, was produced between 1826-1838 and sold by subscription. The folio edition of The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, was also sold by subscription, and published from 1845-1848. The octavo size version of this work was first published from 1849-1854. This plate of a pair of Grey Rabbits and offspring, against a natural background, is clean and bright and was from a set published by Nagel and Weingaertner. ANB. Audoboninfo website.
