Gutenberg Bibles and Shakespeare First Folios are scarce, but for sheer rarity, they cannot match John James Audubon's exquisite Birds of America. Published in an extremely limited edition in 1838, this gathering of 435 life-size prints has virtually disappeared from the market, only 11 known copies remaining in private hands. In December of last year, one of them sold at auction for a record $11.5 million. This slipcase facsimile edition uses state-of-the-art digital scanning techniques to capture the full detail and vibrant colors of the originals. Bound to be a gift to be treasured for a lifetime; a spectacular coffee table book at a spectacular price.
