Welcome to Restored Prints.

Over the past ten years we have offered the very finest prints from some of the World’s rarest and most important natural history publications and in addition, a small, personal selection of important and interesting works of art.

However, we have decided to widen the appeal of our offerings by drastically reducing our prices and delivering the images in the form of ultra-high resolution digital files that our customers can print for themselves or have professionally printed locally.

Modern domestic printers are now quite capable of handling resolutions of up 720 ppi. and the inks are now almost universally fully UV resistant. The need for us to print, pack and ship is, thankfully, now no longer really necessary.

 To accommodate these new arrangements

This web site is presently undergoing a major restructuring


We will eventually be offering over 5,000 plates from the following historically important publications:

Birds of America

John Audubon

Initially our 80 fully restored plates


Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Island

Our enormous and heartfelt thanks to all our past customers for their generous support and to the auction houses and universities who provided so much help and assistance in securing the original resources that have been, and continue to be, our life-blood.
