Book Description Book Club of California, San Francisco, 1957. Hardcover. First edition. Unpaginated. Introductory text followed by 34 numbered plates, each with preceding page of descriptive text; quarto, original brown cloth and decorative boards. John Woodhouse Audubon (1812-1862) was the son of the famous ornithologist John James Audubon. Woodhouse worked with his father on both the Bird Porfolio and the Quadrupeds, and was himself responsible for nearly half the drawings for the Quadrupeds when his father's illness rendered him incapable of completing the project.

Printed by the Grabhorn Press in an edition of 400 copies. Fine in original plain paper jacket. Seller Inventory # 20721
