"Of the ... 500 plates, the first 435 were originally published by Audubon, in London, during the years 1827-1838 ... a set believed to be the finest in uncut state in America ... has ... been followed in making the present reproductions. The final sixty-five subjects were painted at a later date ... They were first reproduced in the octavo Birds of America published by Audubon in New York (and J. B. Chevalier in Philadelphia), 1840-1844. The present plates 436-500 are reproduced from that book."--Note
