Radio Interview: Canada’s Library of Parliament Digitizes Its Copy of Audubon’s “Birds of America”
From the CBC:
In the 1820s, John James Audubon set out to illustrate every single species of bird in North America, ultimately creating large prints depicting more than 1,000 individual birds and more than 450 species.
The Library of Parliament digitized its copy of The Birds of America, which are “by far the largest items in the library’s collection,” said Sonia Bebbington, the library’s director of knowledge management and preservation
So far, six images are available on the library’s Flickr account — with more to come.
