John James Audubon was probably the greatest of American naturalists and undoubtedly the greatest of all bird painters. The best of his famous paintings, 288 full-page, 4-color plates chosen for this handy-sized popular edition is classic Audubon.

Audubon's Birds of America is an excellent addition to your vintage birding collection or your home library.


This book is in ok shape for its age, with no rips or tears. Please note the wear on the book boards, notes on the inside page, and the beautiful bookplates. Binding is splitting, but all pages are firmly attached.

This book isn't in the best condition but is worth owning if you are an Audubon or bird collector.
