It is with great enthusiasm that we present the entire set of hand colored lithographs by Thomas Doughty from The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports with illustrations published in Philadelphia from 1830-1834. This work is exceedingly rare in its entirety and contains the first series of color sporting prints published in America. 

Thomas Doughty (1793-1856) was born in Philadelphia and apprenticed as a leather worker in his youth. Around 1816 he began painting in his spare time, and in 1830 commenced the publication of The Cabinet of Natural History with his brother John. The Cabinet was issued on a monthly subscription basis, and covered topics such as natural history, sporting, hunting expeditions, and travelogues. Thomas left the publication in 1832 and traveled to Boston to further pursue his career as a painter. He would earn renown for his topographical paintings, helping to found the Hudson River School art movement in America.

These are beautiful prints, with a na´ve quality & superb landscapes of an untouched America that are entrancing. The condition is good, with toning on many and some defects on a few as noted. The size of each print is approximately 11 by 9 inches. Descriptive text is included, along with a copy of the title page.
