More Information
In this latest printing of the Baby Elephant Folio edition of Audubon?s Birds of America, the thumbnail images accompanying the descriptive captions are printed in full color for the convenience of the reader. This printing also features an attractive new binding cloth, in a sumptuous teal color.

The Baby Elephant Folio presents all 435 of Audubon?s brilliant hand-colored engravings in exquisite reproductions derived from the original plates of the National Audubon Society?s archival copy of the rare Double Elephant Folio.
