Audubons Animals: The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

Reproduced from an archival copy, this handsome boxed set includes a new edition of John James Audubons classic work on animals along with twenty-four facsimile prints suitable for framing.Following the success of his Birds of America, John James Audubon set out to document North Americas mammals--many never before depicted or seen outside of their native habitat--in the breathtaking color and detail that was his trademark.

First published in 1854, Audubons portraits of the nations native mammals are still considered by many to include the finest animal prints ever published.To create this edition of Audubons classic work, the original archive edition housed at Londons Natural History Museum has been specially photographed and each of the 150 hand-colored prints painstakingly reproduced.

The book also includes information on the current biological names and conservation status for each species, as some have sadly become extinct or endangered since Audubons time, making this a welcome addition to the collections of bibliophiles and nature lovers alike.
