John James Audubon (1785-1851), American bird naturalist, just discovered that his work had been eaten by a rat. The text says “The American celebrity [John James] Audubon’s important travel documents that he had been copying and gave to relatives for safekeeping were eaten by mice. He was extremely sad but tried again, and after just three years, his boxes were once more full of paper.”

Format is Aiban. Slightly soiled. Repaired worm holes. Thin sections and creases because of age.
