The Birds of AmericaThe Birds of America

The Bien Chromolithographic Edition

WAS $500 - NOW $95

This is probably the best value bargain book we have ever stocked and a must buy for anyone with a serious interest in bird books. Our stocks are limited so be sure to get in quickly.

After the death of John James Audubon his sons engaged the New York printer Julius Bien, known for his accomplishments in the relatively new field of chromolithography, to produce a new elephant folio edition of their father's landmark work. Using the latest in chromolithographic techniques, Bien reproduced 150 images before the publication was abandoned due to the American Civil War. 

Weighing over 6.5kg and bound in cloth with a full cloth slipcase, this beautifully produced folio is the first complete reproduction of the 150 Bien chromolithographs and includes a scholarly introduction on their history and production by Joel Oppenheimer. 

Due to the considerable size and weight of this book, special postage rates will apply per copy:

AUSTRALIA: AU$20 --- NEW ZEALAND: AU$40 --- REST OF WORLD: AU$90
