The Amsterdam Edition was a full size exact reproduction of the original Havell Edition completed in the 1970's. The process used was photolithography. The paper is the same double elephant folio size as the Havell Edition and the Bien Edition approximately 26"x39.5 (ca 98 x 67cm). The Amsterdam Edition prints have a Watermark "G Schut and Zonen (JR) ) Audubon (OT)

The original Havell edition was published on hand-made rag paper and the publishers were determined that the paper of their edition should match the original. Unhappy with the commercially available papers, they turned to the traditional paper manufacturers G. Schut & Zonen (founded in 1625), who, using 100% unbleached cotton rags, were able to produce a wove paper of the highest quality, with each sheet bearing a watermark unique to the edition: G. Schut & Zonen [JR monogram] Audubon [OT monogram].
