The Birds of America, Amsterdam Edition

In 1971-72 the first complete edition of Audubon’s great work, The Birds of America, was published in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, using the original folio copy sold by Audubon to the Teyler museum in the early 1800’s. This project was supervised by an international panel of noted ornithologists and Audubon experts.

These prints are exact facsimiles of the world-famous Double Elephant Edition of The Birds of America, published by John J. Audubon over a period of 12 years in Edinburgh, Scotland, and London, England. It is sometimes referred to as the Second Edition of Audubon’s birds.

The edition consists of all 435 full color plates of the birds depicted life size by Audubon in his famous work. They are exactly the same size as the original edition, 26 x 39 ½ inches, except that those bound in books have been slightly trimmed when removed from the book volumes. In addition, a few of the prints do not have a plate mark, which is found on the smaller images only in the Amsterdam edition. Because of the demanding and costly process to reproduce all 435 prints, it is unlikely another complete reprint will be attempted.

The images drawn by Audubon were printed on 100% cotton watermarked paper, with plate marks. No subsequent facsimiles have the plate mark as it is unique to the Amsterdam Edition. The watermark on the long side of the sheet reads “G. Schut and Zonen Audubon” in recognition of the mill which produced this fine paper. This edition was limited to 250 copies and is only one of two complete facsimile editions, the second being the Abbeville Press Edition in 1985. These editions are the only complete facsimile editions issued in the past 170 years.

We offer a large number of these prints from a complete set. In our pricing we have attempted to match or fall below the market.
