This chromolithograph print of the grey kiwi is from the 2nd edition of Sir Walter Buller's "The History of the Birds of New Zealand". The 2-volume set of books was published in 1888. A fine example of early printed colour using limestone plates for each colour layer. The Dutch artist J.G.Keulemans produced the original image. The 1873 first edition, published in one volume, was illustrated with hand-coloured prints. I have many other bird prints from "Buller's Birds". If the ones you want are not on display, please ask.
