Mallard Duck, Anas Boschas, by Julius Bien.

This is an Audubon that was published in 1836 Habell, printed and hand-colored. And as you can see by the photographs, it is in really rough shape. A specially targeted water bath in our new studio helped to lift glue and old scotch tape that probably predates the 1930s. Still work to be done but we love the new larger space and the ease with which we can handle these larger works.
