Audubon Exhibition

This has to be worth a visit…
Tuesday 7th December 2004 – 31st March 2005
Picton Reading Room, Central Library, William Brown Street L3
0151 233 5844
A free exhibition centred around the 19th century four volume work “Birds of North America” by the illustrious American artist John James Audubon. It represents the most ambitious and comprehensive ornithological work ever produced. Liverpool is fortunate in having one of only 120 in the world and because each copy was hand coloured every one is unique. This is only one item from the Central Library historic Special Collection, one of the best of its kind in the country.
