Illustrations to The Birds of South America

Limited Edition, 1915-16  

From the great unfinished work "The Birds of South America" by Lord Brabourne and Charles Chubb, originally published by John Wheldon & Co. London, 1913. Following the publication of the first volume of "The Birds of South America", World War I and the death of Lord Brabourne intervened to disrupt the publication of Volume 2.  However, 38 hand-colored plates by Henrik Groenvold were completed and distributed in a limited edition of 200 entitled "Illustrations to The Birds of South America" (1915-16).    Each hand colored print is on a sheet 10-1/8" x  12-5/8" (255 x 320 mm).
