The rediscovery of Audubon's remarkable, jewel-like original paintings of butterflies, moths, other insects, as well as small reptiles has provided the basis for the present work. Never before had these studies been reproduced. These renderings, achieved when little or no reference material existed on American entomology, represent an extraordinary pioneering effort in line - on a more modest scale - with Audubon's monumental Birds and Animals. Alice Ford's fascinating and authentic account of many forgotten episodes in the artist's life and of his meetings with other artist-scientists of his pioneer era is further highlighted with a few selected works of these contemporaries. Audubon's life as an artist makes absorbing reading and the author has brought together a host of romantically vivid and historically accurate incidents providing a remarkable picture of his life. The jacket has a 1" x 1" piece missing, and is worn at the corners and spine ends, as well as the right edges. The binding is quarter cloth green with yellow boards and gold lettering on the spine. On the inside ffep is a price from a used book store on a small sticker. Receipt included. ; 4to - over 9 3/4" to 12" tall; 120 pages
