This sparkling edition of Audubons Birds of America displays all 435 of Audubons hand-colored engravings, graced with an illuminating introduction by Roger Tory Peterson that places Audubon in his ornithological and art historical context. Issued with the full endorsement and cooperation of the Audubon Society, the stunning Baby Elephant Folio- here reproduced in a miniature, gem-like version-was the first work ever to arrange Audubons plates in scientific order.

Roger Tory Peterson was widely regarded as Americas most notable ornithologist from his historic publication of A Field Guide to the Birds in 1934 to his death in 1996. Virginia Marie Peterson is a scientist and an expert on the environmental effects of oil spills.
