Краткое описание

John James Audubon's Journal of 1826: The Voyage to The Birds of America.

When John James Audubon embarked for Liverpool from New Orleans in 1826, he carried with him more than 250 of his watercolor drawings (in a heavy case), a packet of letters of introduction, and many well-founded concerns that he was a fool to be gambling his family's fortunes on so risky and grandiose a venture as publishing The Birds of America. These journal entries, accurately transcribed for the first time here, convey the inner ambition and emotion of Audubon's undertaking—"Oh, America, Wife, Children and acquaintances, Farewell!" They document his transformation from a beleaguered backwoods artist and naturalist to an internationally recognized ornithologist, illustrator, and nature essayist."Nearly 200 years later, Audubon is in fact 'here, there and all over the Globe.' And we are very lucky indeed to have a definitive transcription of the document that describes how that happened."—Boston Globe"The adventure would continue to unroll after Dec. 31, 1826, when this journal ends, but when Audubon signs off that night, he leaves us feeling that we have accompanied him in the achievement of a masterpiece."—Pasatiempo
