About the book:

In the early 1800s John James Audubon embarked on an ambitious twin journey--a physical journey around a largely unknown North America, and an artistic journey aimed at painting all of the continent's birds. While he didn't get to every species, he studied and painted a majority of the country's bird life, bringing a new understanding to science as well as the interested layperson. Also noteworthy from an artistic standpoint, his paintings depicted the birds in natural positions in their native habitats. To this day, these plates remain the most famous wildlife artwork on display. All birders and nature lovers who covet Audubon's landmark work will be grateful for the first-rate prints assembled in the affordable Octavo collection. The large hardcover book includes reprints of the original 500 plates from the First Royal Octavo Edition of 1841, lovingly reproduced on quality paper. An introduction by Audubon scholar Suzanne Low provides background history and criticism.
