John James Audubon, 1839
[Audubon, John James (1785-1851).] Catalogue of Audubon's Original Drawings Exhibiting at the Lyceum of Natural History, 563 Broadway. [New York]: W.G. Boggs, Printer [1839].

Rare catalogue. Audubon exhibited his watercolor models for The Birds of America at the New York Academy of Sciences (then called the Lyceum of Natural History) in 1839, following a triumphal return to the United States from England. The present catalogue is rare; RBH records no copies.

Octavo (185 x 110mm). 12 pp. (Some wear at corners and edges of leaves; inner corner of text trimmed slightly, as though a staple was removed before the pamphlet was placed in the current binding.) Paper covered boards, paper spine label (some soiling to spine and boards). Provenance: The Long Island Historical Society (stamp to title page).
