About this book

John James Audubon's acclaimed masterpiece, The Birds of America, was first published over 150 years ago, but all successive editions have been reproduced from engravings of the original watercolours. For this book, the watercolours themselves are reproduced, revealing the true colour and detail of the original work.
`The book is worth the price for the pictures alone but the text provides a remarkable insight into Audubon as an innovative artist of enormous talent - altogether a beautiful book - Archives of Natural History
