The Audubon Society Baby Elephant Folio: Audubon's Birds of America
This diminutive edition of Audubon's Birds of America measures just 4 inches by 5 inches, but it manages to squeeze into that space all 435 of Audubon's hand-colored engravings, each on a page of its own. The book is 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 Audubon's plates in scientific order.
