Description:

A masterwork of natural history illustration from the original Double Elephant Folio, or Havell Edition of Audubon's "Birds of America." A monumental project, spanning decades from original fieldwork to final publication, it was produced at the expense of $115,640 (more than $2 million in today's money) and employed a team of over fifty colorists. The outcome is widely regarded as not only the finest work on ornithology ever published, nor even as the greatest picture book ever produced, but as one of the most treasured of all books that have ever been printed. According to "The Economist" magazine, when adjusting for inflation five of ten highest prices ever paid for printed books were for versions of Audubon's "Birds of America."
