Buller, New Zealand;  (Second Edition, Supplement)

The second edition of Buller's work on New Zealand ornithology, published in 1888 and profusely illustrated with chromolithographs, received wide acclaim.  About twenty years later the author followed this with a two-volume folio Supplement.  It included 12 plates by Keulemans, the first five appearing in the first volume (1905) and the remaining seven appearing in the second (1906).
