Born in Haiti in 1785, John James Audubon was a naturalist and painter and considered one of the greatest natural history artists of all time. He wandered the woods and rivers of the wild frontiers of North America shooting, studying, posing and painting birds and other animals, and many years later, the resulting books would change the worlds of ornithology and natural history art forever. He is best known for his groundbreaking work 'The Birds of America', of which only 120 complete original sets are known to exist. Less well known is his final work, an equally ambitious project to document the mammals of North America. He painted hundreds of species in their natural habitat in remarkable detail including many frontier animals depicted for the first time, each characterised by his highly dramatic style. Here is the marmot, woodchuck, groundhog, mountain hare, squirrels and foxes, a flying squirrel, a wolverine, mink, Canada porcupine, American beavers and badgers, shrews, the common mouse in a family of four munching on a chunk of bread in a kitchen scene, a polar bear with iceberg behind him in the scene, a ring-tailed bassaris, Columbian black-tailed deer, Rocky Mountain goats, in all 150 four footed mammals in their natural habitat. Beautiful colour and detail, most are presented in landscape format within the volume which could at this price easily be dismantled to frame as favourite prints. With marbled endpapers, 160 pages, 26 x 33.4cm.
