Learn about our rare Audubon Birds of America collection

Aside from other temporary exhibits that we’ll announce here in Faculty Focus and on our website, we keep a rotating exhibit of prints from our very popular Audubon’s Birds of America Collection on the ground floor, in two cases you pass through on your way to the elevators. It is considered to be the single most valuable set of volumes in our collections -- only 120 complete sets are known to exist.

We are very fortunate to have this rare, complete set in our Special Collections.
