This print is by John Woodhouse Audubon, the younger son of the famed naturalist John James Audubon, and very much an active part of the family of talented artists documenting the botany and the animals native to North America. The work is one of the larger size original prints, plate number 139, titled "Large-Tailed Spermophile" (Latin name "Spermophilus macrourus, Bennett"). The subject is a male weasel-like North American small mammal in its natural habitat. The print is not a reproduction. This is the 1848 edition lithographed and printed by J.T. Bowen in Philadelphia. The print measures 21 1/2" by 28 1/2" and it's currently without glass, in a late 19th century style veneered dark wood frame. Over the years it has acquired a diagonal long water stain line at upper right, and there is another water stain at lower left below the image. There are other imperfections including some edge damage from a nail, pitting of paper at upper left, a one inch edge tear at right, a few losses in the animal fur, etc. The stains can likely be lightened or removed by paper conservators. So, though not in mint condition, the print is very pleasing. The hand coloring is quite fresh and rich. The print is NOT laid down. ASK FOR MORE PHOTOS OF CONDITION ISSUES. .
