GROUSE HUNTING SEASON: MORE ON AUDUBON'S FIRST ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATION

Now that the word is out about Aububon's grouse engraving, people are on the lookout for examples. As of last week at least six examples had been identified. Here's another one. -Editor

Andrew Hurle of Australia writes:

Audubon Grouse on sample sheet Can't say I share the fuss about the engraved grouse, but for those who might be interested there is at least one other impression of the bird. This might make it the 7th extant I suppose. Given it's grouse-hunting season perhaps these birds will indeed start popping up everywhere.

It is on another specimen sheet that I assume comes from Fairman, Draper & Underwood although there is no attribution visible on the paper. I've put an image and detail at:

Is the leaping deer as famous as the grouse? Perhaps not.
