This volume is tremendous in print quality and color. Printed on non-glossy paper (as was the original Double Elephant Folio) it is the best modern edition that I have seen. The ink colors are deep and rich--like Audubon's original work. It is true to the original print order of the DEF Havell Edition and sizes the prints as best as is possible to maximize the image size on paper. The binding seems to be of a good quality. The book's cover and slip case are covered with heavy cloth. Clearly, however, only time will tell regarding how well this edition will stand-up to use (at the time of this review the volume was published only four months ago). The Natural History Museum was clearly interested in publishing a high quality set of Audubon prints. If you are interested in studying Audubon's work this is the book. I would have liked to see some statement in the book regarding the paper quality in regards to acid content and archival quality. I have quite a few books that have yellowed in my lifetime. Hopefully this one will not.
