Interesting all round, but what does any of this have to do with the Hebrides?

Well Audubon followed Birds of America with a sequel Ornithological Biographies. This was a collection of life histories of each species written with Scottish (and Northton, Harris) ornithologist William MacGillivray. The two books were printed separately to avoid a British law requiring copies of all publications with text to be deposited in Crown libraries, a huge financial burden for the self-published Audubon

Wonder how much the sequel is worth?
