16 John James Audubon, Robert Havell Canada Jay (Elephant folio Plate CVII) Gray Jay, Perisoreus canadensis on Quercus alba, White Oak.
London Robert Havell 1836 First Etching Very Good 
Engraving with etching, aquatint and hand-coloring on J Whatman hand-made paper watermarked 1836. Unusaully wide, untrimmed margins showing the pulls from the binder's signatures on the left margin and the original gilt to the top edge. "I have found this species of Jay breeding in the State of Maine, where many individuals belonging to it reside the whole year, and where in fact so many as fifteen or twenty may be seen in the course of a day by a diligent person anxious to procure them. In the winter, their numbers are constantly augmented by those which repair to that country from places farther north. They advance to the southward as far as the upper parts of the State of New York.... Now, to my eye, the Canada Jay is as elegant in its movements, whether perched or on wing, as any other of our Jays, although its apparel is certainly very homely. It is joyous and lively at all times, even when, pushed by extreme hunger, it approaches the lonely camp of the traveller, with the hope of obtaining a share, however small, of his perhaps scanty fare. John James Audubon; 35 7/8 x 25 7/8

17 John James Audubon, Robert Havell Rose-breasted Grosbeak (elephant folio plate CXXVII). Fringilla ludoviciana. On Ground Hemlock, or Canadian Yew, Taxus canadensis.
London Robert Havell 1836 First Thus Etching Very Good 
Engraving with etching, aquatint and hand-coloring on J Whatman hand-made paper watermarked 1836. . Unusaully wide, untrimmed margins showing the pulls from the binder's signatures on the left margin and the gilt to the top edge. "I closed my eyes, and was passing away into the world of dreaming existence, when suddenly there burst on my soul the serenade of the Rose-breasted bird, so rich, so mellow, so loud in the stillness of the night, that sleep fled from my eyelids. Never did I enjoy music more: it thrilled through my heart, and surrounded me with an atmosphere of bliss. One might easily have imagined that even the Owl, charmed by such delightful music, remained reverently silent. Long after the sounds ceased did I enjoy them, and when all had again become still, I stretched out my wearied limbs, and gave myself up to the luxury of repose." John James Audubon; 35 7/8 x 25 7/8
