About this book

American Museum of Natural History Ornithologist Paul Sweet takes readers on a migratory journey across the globe, introducing them to unique and exquisite birds, as well as to groundbreaking avian studies from the past five centuries. Featuring 40 frameable prints, this stunning collection gives bird lovers a precious look at illustrated pioneering ornithological monographs from the museum's Rare Book Collections.

"[...] If you’re interested in ornithological history, books, and/or art, then you should enjoy Extraordinary Birds: Essays and Plates of Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library. It’s not a perfect set, but an interesting book plus 40 prints for $50 (or less) is a great deal."
