Magnificent New Printing of Audubon’s Birds of America

In this latest printing of the Baby Elephant Folio of Audubon’s Birds of America, the thumbnail images accompanying the descriptive captions are printed in full color (formerly in black and white); a bright teal binding cloth, as the cover heron’s plumage; a new systematic arrangement of the prints, following the modern classification of species; and new descriptive captions about each bird, allow us to appreciate Audubon’s achievement in the light of modern ornithology.


The Baby Elephant Folio presents all 435 of Audubon’s brilliant handcolored engravings in exquisite reproductions derived from the original plates of the National Audubon Society’s archival copy of the rare Double Elephant Folio.
