For the first time since their appearance in Audubon's Elephant Portfolio (1827-38), these magnificent hand-coloured engravings have been completely reorganised in a manner that closely follows the modern phylogenetic order for birds. Both scientific and common names have been brought up to date. However the supreme achievement of this edition is the quality of the printing and its faithfulness to the original art.
