PrintFinders.com

A number of the individual web pages on this website have links to bird prints available through PrintFinders.com. These prints are generally smaller in size - 18.75" x 27.5" than the 23' x 30' bird prints shown above. Prints of the Key West Pigeon (Quail Dove), the White Crowned Pigeon, the Roseate Tern, and the Purple Heron are only available through PrintFinders.com. Prices for a smaller print of 18.75" x 27.5" size understandably will be less than a larger 23' x 30' print. Both Art.com and PrintFinder.com provide a matting and framing option.

Original Havell Prints

Prints available from Art.com and PrintFinder.com generally cost in the mid $20 to mid $30 range depending on size, the paper, and the process used in reproduction.

Individual plates from the original Havell edition generally sell for between $5,000 and $175,000 depending on the image. The original Havell "top of the line" "double elephant" folio prints of Birds of America, measuring approximately 26 x 39 were published between 1827 and 1838. Engraved mainly by Robert Havell, Audubon's prints were hand-colored and hand-printed with watermark and date.  There were  435 plates in each folio and an estimated 180 complete folios published.  Only about 135 sets are known to exist and most of these are part of institutional collections. In good condition without tears or folds and with little trimming from their original size the cost of a print will be many thousands of dollars.

The price in 2002 for an Audubon Tell-Tale Godwit or snipe print showing two birds in a Florida farm setting was $5,500. The asking price for a print of the Florida Jay in excellent color but trimmed to 22 x 28 inches was $7,500. A dated 1835 Roseate tern print trimmed well inside plate mark was priced at  $1,800. In New York in the year 2000, a complete copy of Birds of America sold for $8,802,500.

 

1972 Amsterdam edition

In 1972 in the Netherlands a reprint of Audubon's Birds of America was published. There were 250 numbered sets of full size prints measuring 100 x 67 cm. (39 x 25 inches).

The 1972 edition reproduced faithfully the original Havell edition. All 435 full-size colorplates were of the highest standard of quality, utilized the most advanced printing techniques and were reproduced on paper similar in quality to the original. A 1972 print of the American Flamingo sold for $4,500.
