AUDUBON'S AVIARY: THE ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS FOR THE BIRDS OF AMERICA
Fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. Large format. Blue cloth with white, black and yellow title. This is the Deluxe edition and includes a hand-produced facsimile of an Audubon watercolour (The Tufted Titmouse). Stunning colour illustrations throughout! In colour pictorial slip case. Features the one-and-only set of watercolours that Audubon created as a prototype for the large engraved edition of 'The Birds of America'. All 474 watercolours of the New-York Historical Society are reproduced.
Wrapper has some very light edge-creasing. Facsimile reproduction painting is contained in an envelope to front endpaper, which has come unstuck from endpaper. Still excellent. This copy would make a wonderful gift. Slip case is in fine condition. Also contained in original colour cardboard box, which has a couple of dents and some wear.
