Audubon's Bird Book Won't Sell For Chicken Feed

John James Audubon's great work, The Birds Of America, goes on sale Friday at Christie's Auction House. The giant pages of the four-volume set are filled with life-size images of Carolina parakeets, Great Blue Herons and other bird species. Only 120 complete sets are believed to exist. The last one sold for more than $11 million.
