8 1 AUDUBON. The Birds of America from Original Draw-

ings By John James Audubon ... .
~ London: Published by the Author. 1827-30.

4 vols., elephant folio, and LETTERPRESS, imp. 8vo, in 5 vols.; an extrepiely fne copy,
newly bound, in half russia, gilt backs.

One of the most sumptuous ornithological works ever published ; the coloring of the
plumage, and the exact drawing of the birds, can scarcely be surpassed.



2O AUFRICHT.

The birds are represented in action amid the scenes, or on the plants and
trees, most common to their habits, presenting a variety of land and marine
views of floral and other productions of different climates and seasons. Its
great dimensions have permitted eagles and other birds of the largest size to
be represented in their natural size, and even in groups. "All is combined
to ally," says Brunei, "in the most happy manner, the exactness of individual
details with a living and animated representation of general forms." The
plates were published without any text, to avoid the necessity of furnishing
copies gratis to the public libraries in Englan agreeably to the law of copy-
right. Triibner, p. 174, quotes the work with plain plates. I have never
seen one in that condition. Owing to the destruction, by fire, of the stock
and copperplates, the work has become extremely rare j and even small
sections command high prices.

kind." HALLAM.
