All of John James Audubon's brilliant bird engravings come alive in one complete and compact package.
This sparkling edition of Audubon's Birds of America displays all 435 of Audubon's hand-colored engravings, graced with an illuminating introduction by Roger Tory Peterson that places Audubon in his ornithological and art historical context. Issued with the full endorsement and cooperation of the Audubon Society, the stunning Baby Elephant Folio—here reproduced in a miniature, gem-like version—was the first work ever to arrange Audubon's plates in scientific order.
