1950s Audubons Birds of America Vintage Bird Illustrations Book
Popular Edition ~ Beautiful, Classic Audubon Illustrations.

"John James Audubon was probably the greatest of American naturalists, and undoubtably the greatest of all bird painters. The best of his famous paintings ~~ 288 full page, 4~color plates ~~ have been carefully chosen for this handy~sized popular edition.
"Ludlow Griscom...has written a splendid new Introduction, discussing Audubon and how his fame and renown have increased since his death nearly a century ago. Each of the 288 magnificent plates is accompanied by a concise, descriptive text.
"This handsome book is designed to provide an endless source of pleasure." ~ 1950

Copyright 1950 / Second Printing / 320 pages / Illustrated with 288 full-color drawings.

The lovely little book measures 5.5" X 8.25" X 1" and is in very good condition with most of the wear being to the dustjacket. No writing, marks, folds or tears. The spine is good. About the only flaws are that the dust jacket shows a few small tears around the edges, & the book does have age~toning to it overall all with more showing at the front & back inside covers.
The pictures are clean & bright & soft & deep....beautiful, beautiful old~school drawings. There are very many prints of very beautiful birds here. This edition of this book was of fair quality when it was printed back in the 50s. There are a number of illustrations where the plates were not lined up exactly during printing ~ resulting in blurry images. But the vast majority of the pictures are wonderful to look at. The actual picture size on each page varies slightly, but generally is around 4" by 5.5". It is a nice size ~ you can pick up alot of detail in these illustrations. A beautiful little book.

This Popular Edition of Audubon's Birds of America is still a delight to read and enjoy :)
