About This Item

London: Witherby & Co. This is a proof plate with original hand color, COLORED by GRONVOLD, pencilled on the verso "coloured proof by myself D. H. G." and "10/-". The female & male symbols are pencilled to the right of the printed caption. In the published version, the head and shoulders of one bird are quite a bit blacker than this proof - there are black ink hatchmarks in the margin - perhaps Gronvold neglected to finish this? Also a pencilled "396" in the top right corner. Paper size 13 3/4 x 9 3/4". Ca. 1922. Mathews published his masterwork "Birds of Australia" from 1910 through 1928. In their published form, the lithographs were hand colored.
