Louisiana Heron

Louisiana Heron

The Library's four volume folio of Audubon's Birds of America was purchased in 1903 from the estate of Toronto's eleventh mayor, the Honourable George William Allan, who had been one of Audubon's original subscribers. Only two hundred copies were printed; the library's copy is one of only five in Canada.
