9780674031029: Audubon: Early Drawings
Review:

John James Audubon's distinctive role in American ornithology, natural history, and art has long been acknowledged by the numerous volumes that have been published on his life, career, and accomplishments. This handsome volume further contributes to an understanding of the diverse genius and artistic creativity of Audubon by presenting, in meticulously printed colored plates, 116 of his earliest bird drawings (American and European) from the collections of the Houghton Library and Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University. Beginning in 1805 with one of his earliest drawings, these plates allow readers to examine Audubon's evolving style and skills as an ornithological artist. Each plate is accompanied by the name given the species by Audubon; the location where the bird was observed, or collected; and the date. Particularly interesting are the ornithological notes on the natural history and unique characteristics of the species included with each plate. These plates are known as the Harris Collection, and a brief but informative essay provides an introduction to this Harvard collection.--P. D. Thomas"Choice" (03/01/2009)

From the Publisher:

In 1805, Jean Jacques Audubon was a twenty-year-old itinerant Frenchman of ignoble birth and indifferent education who had fled revolutionary violence in both Haiti and France to take refuge in frontier America. Ten years later, John James Audubon was an American citizen, entrepreneur, and family man whose fervent desire to 'become acquainted with nature' had led him to reinvent himself as a naturalist and artist whose publication of "Birds of America" would soon earn him international acclaim. The drawings he made during this crucial decade, of specimens he collected in France and in America - now held by the Houghton Library and the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard - are published together here for the first time in large format and full color. In these portraits, we watch Audubon invent his ingenious methods of posing and depicting his subjects, and we trace his development into a scientist and an artist who could proudly sign his artworks 'drawn from Nature.' The drawings are enhanced by an essay on the sources of Audubon's art by his biographer, Richard Rhodes; full transcription of Audubon's own annotations; ornithological commentary and an essay on Audubon's science by Scott V. Edwards; and an account of the collection's history by Leslie A. Morris.Splendid in their own right, these drawings also illuminate the self-invention of one of the most important figures in American natural history. They will delight and inform all those interested in American art, nature, birds, and the life and times of John James Audubon.

Descripción Belknap Press September 2008, 2008. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. In 1805, Jean Jacques Audubon was a twenty-year-old itinerant Frenchman of ignoble birth and indifferent education who had fled revolutionary violence in Haiti and then France to take refuge in frontier America. Ten years later, John James Audubon was an American citizen, entrepreneur, and family man whose fervent desire to 'become acquainted with nature' had led him to reinvent himself as a naturalist and artist whose study of birds would soon earn him international acclaim. The drawings he made during this crucial decade--sold to Audubon's friend and patron Edward Harris to help fund his masterwork 'The Birds of America,' and now held by the Houghton Library and the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University--are published together here for the first time in large format and full color. In these 116 portraits of species collected in America and in Europe we see Audubon inventing his ingenious methods of posing and depicting his subjects, and we trace his development into a scientist and an artist who could proudly sign his artworks 'drawn from Nature.' The drawings also serve as a record of the birds found in Europe and the Eastern United States in the early nineteenth century, some now rare or extinct. The drawings are enhanced by an essay on the sources of Audubon's art by his biographer, Richard Rhodes; transcription of Audubon's own annotations to the drawings, including information on when and where the specimens were collected; ornithological commentary by Scott V. Edwards, along with reflections on Audubon as scientist; and an account of the history of the Harris collection by Leslie A. Morris. Splendid in their own right, these drawings also illuminate the self-invention of one of the most important figures in American natural history. They will delight all those interested in American art, nature, birds, and the life and times of John James Audubon. Slipcase a little dirty otherwise a very nice copy.
