The 435 plates in this volume were originally published by Audubon, in London, during the years 1827-1838. A superb set of these original "Elephant Folio" plates - a set believed to be the finest in uncut state in America - has through the courtesy of the owner, been followed in making the present reproductions in this volume. This is a wonderful volume for any Audubon admirer and bird lover as the featured Birds of America plates are in full color and beautifully reproduced from some of the finest originals.
