Book Description: This remarkably beautiful volume gathers together a selection of the most important and vibrant ornithological art from Londonís Natural History Museum. Birds tells the remarkable story of the development of ornithological art through the ages, from the earliest images of birds in the Renaissance, through the Age of Exploration, to the present day. Brilliantly reproduced original artworks by such renowned artists as Audubon, Gould, MacGillivray, Thorburn, and Wolfe are included. The lively accompanying text tells the story of how ornithological art grew out of the naturalistic tradition of European painting to become a genre on its own, where the artistís focus on aesthetic appeal was married to the scientistís need for precision and detail. Many of the works reproduced in this volume have never before been published. The detailed text interweaves science, art history, biography, exploration, and travel to paint a vast and wondrous picture of the bygone world of artist-scientists, exotic birds, and faraway lands. It makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves fine prints and drawings or has an interest in nature or birding.

This is another paragraph

Synopsis: The photographs in this book depict the peregrine falcon in all its grace and beauty. Peregrines are among the most widely distributed of birds, at home on six continents. Never plentiful, they are now among the rarest of living creatures. The cause of their decline, in the 1950s and 1960s, was the contamination of their food chain by pesticides, primarily DDT. As author Candace Savage warns, DDT and other persistent pesticides, long banned in developed countries, are still manufactured in chemical plants and exported to the Third World, while chemical compounds currently used in Western countries may be almost as deadly to the birds. Candace Savage is the author of Wolves and Grizzly Bears.
