1971 – 1973

In 1972 a special limited edition of 250 numbered, complete folios of the original 435 plates was printed in the Netherlands at Amsterdam. They were sold by subscription in complete sets only; subscribers could choose to receive the prints bound or unbound. These are multi-color offset press reproductions of an original complete folio which was purchased in 1839 by the Teyler’s Museum in Haarlem, Holland. The edition is full-sized at 25 by 39 inches, and the paper was specially manufactured in the traditional way using 100% unbleached cotton rags. The paper mill G. Schut & Zonen (founded 1625) specially marked the paper with the Audubon watermark.
