North Cascades Audobon Society Visit
Members of the North Cascades Audubon Society visited Special Collections January 22, to see reproductions of John James Audubon's Birds of America illustrations.
"The Original Water-Color Paintings by John James Audubon for the Birds of America, Reproduced in Color for the First Time from the Collection at the New York Historical Society," is the full title of the set, published in 1966. It is a collector's edition, one of 750 copies.
The book and print collection is the gift of Joe and Roberta Eblen in honor of their daughter, Anna Eblen, who is chair of the Communications department at Western.
