About Us

Audubon Galleries offers the finest examples of the work by famed natural history artist John James Audubon, including editions of his prints in both elephant folio and smaller formats, as well as his books and even original artwork.

Founded in England in 1972, we have for the past forty-two years formed and contributed to important private and corporate collections. We are renowned for our extensive print inventory which is unsurpassed in quality.

Audubon Galleries, along with its sister site Donald Heald Rare Books & Prints, offers material from the greatest age of natural history illustration, in ornithology, botany, zoology and related fields.

Besides original prints from the folio editions of Audubon's Birds and Quadrupeds, we frequently offer for sale complete sets of the octavo editions.  Furthermore, we hold the world's largest inventory of prints from the 1971-72 Amsterdam Edition of the Birds of America.

Our Advisory Board includes the world's leading authorities on Audubon including Susanne Low, Ron Tyler, Robert Peck, and Bill Steiner. Audubon Galleries is a joint venture between William Reese Company of New Haven, Connecticut and Donald A. Heald Rare Books, Prints & Maps of New York.

We are members of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, and the American Historical Print Collectors Society.
