The first Audubon Magazine, published by George Bird Grinnell in his weekly journal Forest and Stream 1887 in the Interests of the Audubon Society for the PROTECTION OF BIRDS is a fascinating piece of conservation history.
As noted in this magazine from a private collection:
A facsimile of Vol. 1, No. 1 of The Audubon Magazine, originally published in February 1887 and reprinted as a supplement to the March 1987 issue of AUDUBON.
Special thanks for tech help from friend Renata Doyle Greene and, fittingly, great-granddaughter of the illustrious ornithologist Lynds Jones (1865-1951).
