About This Item

Abaris Books, NY, 1st edition . Harcover. Fine. "In 1803, an eighteen-year-old West Indies-born Frenchman arrived in New York City, fleeing Napoleon’s conscription. His work would become inextricably entwined with the new world he so proudly adopted... Inspired by the primeval forests and the vast flocks of birds that thrived in them, Audubon spent the next several decades of his life painstakingly documenting the birds of the American wilderness... Combining meticulous scholarship with the dramatic life story of a naturalist and pioneer, ‘Audubon’ reexamines the artist's journals and letters to tell the story of Audubon's quest, the origins of the American spirit, and the sacrifice that resulted in one of the world's greatest bodies of art: 'The Birds of America'. [Pub. Info] There is a protective mylar cover. STATED 1ST EDITION.
