This is an original hand-colored, mid 19th century lithograph print by the iconic American ornithologist and naturalist artist JOHN J. AUDUBON, from the nineteenth century (circa 1849) quadrupeds mammals series in the small octavo size. It is not a late restrike/reprint. Inside the present mat, dimensions are 6 1/4" by 9 1/4" (13" by 15 1/2" as framed). The title is "Carolina Shrew" and this is Plate number 75 in the long series. I've not examined this out of the frame but condition appears to be very good. Allow for reflections in the glass and some false red colors caused by reflections. .
