First published in installments between 1827 and 1838, John James Audubon's collection of life-sized watercolors of North American birds is the standard against which all wildlife illustration is measured. Fewer than 120 copies survive today, locked away in museums and private collections around the world. For this volume, the Natural History Museum in London disbound one of the two original editions it owns, and each of the 435 exquisite hand-colored prints of the original watercolours were photographed using the latest digital scanning technology. From an avocet grazing in a tidal pond to a zenaida dove perched on a flowering branch, each of Audubon's subjects is depicted with the grace and beauty of a living bird in its natural habitat. An avid outdoorsman and explorer, Audubon traveled from Florida to Labrador to Texas and the Dakotas to study and collect his specimens. Straddling the line between science and art, this book mesmerized 19th-century audiences around the world; today it stands as a reminder of the spectacular biodiversity of the North American continent, and of the pioneer spirit that Audubon himself revered. --… (mere)

Collection of original Audubon artwork presented for a new generation, 70 years ago. The introduction gives a short history of bird conservation from Audubon's time until the publishing of this work. It shows that conservation discussions haven't changed much in the last 70+ years. It is enjoyable looking at the great artwork and comparing it to more modern art. I recommend this for anyone interested in art and/or ornithology. ( )

I work for the Academy of Natural sciences in Philadelphia, where we turn the page daily on our copy of the Elephant Edition, so this particular version pales, but still a great book for the collection. ( )

Picked this up at Housing Works several months back. Incredibly detailed illustrations. Good table of contents, no index. ( )

On sale at the moment at Barnes and Noble for a ridiculously low price.

A beautiful book, created by taking apart original materials and digitally photographing them. I can see the difference compared to earlier books that include Audubon prints. The colors and lines are clear and the paper stock is pleasingly thick. Audubon's bird portraits not only represented a shift toward naturalistic depiction, but are in some cases lovely enough to make me tearful.

Ornithology nerds will enjoy comparing Audubon's Latin and common names to contemporary nomenclature. ( )
