(After) J.J. Audobon, "No. 88, Plate 440, Noddy Tern, Male, Lith Printed & Col by JT Bowen, Philad." This color lithograph measures 6" x 8" (image) and with gilt frame and suede mat under glass, the measurements are 17" x 18." It is "after" the 1840-1844 Octavo Edition of Audubon's work. Plate 440 NODDY TERN, The Octavo Editions, called THE BIRDS OF AMERICA from Drawings Made in the United States and its Territories, was published in seven volumes by the author and J.B. Chevalier, New York and Philadelphia, 1840-1844. The Octavo series measures 1/8 the size of the Havell Double Elephant Portfolio. Unlike the Havell edition, the plates, lithographed in color, are considerably smaller. They bear the same legend as the Havell edition except that in the lower right-hand corner, J.T. Bowen is shown as the lithographer.
