Tuesday 27 February 2018 Audubon's Last Wilderness Journey launches March 2

The Louise Hauss and David Brent Miller Audubon Collection is one of the cornerstones of the Jule Collins Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University, Alabama. Within that collection, one of the true gems is a complete set of the bound volumes of The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, a publication John James Audubon began working on almost immediately after he completed his more well-known project, The Birds of America. The Quadrupeds was published in three volumes between 1845 and 1848, though work on the project began in the early 40s.

JCSM’s set is particularly beautiful since the original binding is of high quality the set has been cared for and the individual prints have had little exposure to light and other damaging environmental factors.

On Friday, March 2, JCSM have invited all of the authors of Audubon’s Last Wilderness Journey: The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, to give talks about their research. The book event will be in the morning, so visitors will have the opportunity to visit the corollary exhibition featuring The Quadruped folios, as well as framed loose prints and contextualizing objects and information.
