DESCRIPTION
   The artist and naturalist, John James Audubon, famous for his historic work on the Birds of America produced the outstanding work on North American mammals in the 19th century. While many of America’s animals were familiar, they were not described and illustrated in one publication until Audubon and his co-author, the Reverend John Bachman published the "Imperial Folio of Quadrupeds."
   At the time, information was scarce and much of western America was still poorly known. The project proved challenging partly because of the nocturnal habits of many mammals. Ultimately, 150 hand-colored lithographs were printed and published between 1845 and 1848. A selection of these beautiful and rare prints are on display in the Maximus Gallery.
   Visit the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, John and Peggy Maximus Gallery of antique print art every day 10:00 - 5:00. Included with regular admission to the Museum.
