about

John James Audubon's Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America was the largest and most significant color plate book produced in the United States in the nineteenth century, and a fitting monument to the genius of America's most famous ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. Measuring an impressive 27 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches, the Quadrupeds was published in 1845-48 as a three-volume elephant folio broadsheet edition, the artist's final great natural history work and the first single publication to document America's animals. Audubon's Last Wilderness Journeyreproduces all one hundred and fifty original lithographic prints in color, with a timeline of Audubon's life and a map of his 1843 expedition to the Missouri River with Reverend John Bachman, his friend, fellow naturalist, and co-author. Essays by noted experts in art history, wildlife science, and ecology put this remarkable work in context, explaining its technical, artistic, and scientific importance and legacy.Surprisingly, there is very little currently available in print on the Quadrupeds. This exceptional new volume will have serious appeal to the general public and to art historians, scientists, environmentalists, scholars, researchers, and academics alike.Ron Tyler is the former director of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.Charles T.
