Plate 62 Passenger Pigeon.

Once North America's most common bird, the passenger pigeon has been extinct since 1914. One of Audubon's most beautiful compositions.

Full sheet 39-1/4 x 25-7/8 inches with watermark J WHATMAN TURKEY MILL 1828. Clean sheet, once folded in half. With very well repaired center horizontal crease. Difficult to detect in colored areas, the crease runs horizontally across the center of the sheet. (See photo of full print below.)

Print has interesting provenance and outstanding color. Inquire for price.
