About this Item

Folio, publisher's half faux leather with linen-covered boards, matching linen slipcase with pictorial label. Size: 11 3/4 x 15", 694 pages. 482 full-color illustrations, 435 duotones. Fine condition. N.B. This is heavy and will require additional postage. "Organized and annotated by Roger Tory Peterson, America's best-known ornithologist, and issued with the full endorsement and cooperation of the Audubon Society, this magnificent volume is as thorough in scientific classification as it is beautiful. Peterson's fascinating introduction places Audubon in the context of the history of American ornithological art and also reproduces a wide sampling of the work of Audubon's notable predecessors and disciples, including Peterson's own justly famous paintings. This new systematic arrangement of the prints, complete with informative commentaries about each bird, made it possible to correct many of the problems or errors in Audubon's original edition revealed by later scholarship. The colorful captions in the back provide fascinating commentaries on each featured bird-,". Bookseller Inventory # 28962
