Abstract:

Consists of original manuscripts, photostats and transcripts of additional manuscripts, and printed material relating to Audubon, his life and work.

Original manuscripts include several descriptions used in his ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY; manuscript descriptions to accompany plates 1-7, 10, 13-17, 19, 23, 25, 28, 31-32, 34, 36, 38, 40-41, and 45 in his VIVIPAROUS QUADRUPEDS OF NORTH AMERICA; and over 50 letters by Audubon to his wife (Lucy Bakewell Audubon), his sons (John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford Audubon), Robert Havell (the English engraver of BIRDS OF AMERICA), and others. In addition, there are original letters by Mrs. Audubon, his sons, John and Julia Bachman, members of the Bakewell family, and Francis Herrick.

More than 30 photostats and 6 bound volumes of Howard Corning's transcripts extend the collection's coverage of Audubon's correspondence. Subject files of printed material include other Audubon exhibitions, Audubon's life in Florida, Robert Havell, portraits by Audubon, portraits of Audubon, and Mill Grove, Audubon's Pennsylvania estate. One box is completely devoted to Princeton's 1959 comprehensive Audubon exhibition, related correspondence and research material.
