28.     AUDUBON, J[ohn] J[ames]. Ten high-quality modern full-size color reproductions of Audubon’s ornithological masterpieces, including nine prints from the much-coveted Amsterdam facsimile edition and one print from the Ariel edition. The Amsterdam edition used eight-color offset printing on museum quality, 100% cotton-rag paper bearing along the outside edge the watermark: G. Schut & Zonen—R—Audubon” (the initial “R” is within a circle). The Amsterdam edition was made from the Double Elephant Folio set in the Teyler Museum of Haarlem, Holland. The Ariel edition used a collotype process printed on very heavy and stiff paper with no watermark. An excellent selection of which many are native to Texas.
