John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912) learned lithography from Professor Hermann Schlegel while working in the Leyden Museum.  Keulemans went on collecting expeditions in West Africa, where he bought a coffee plantation with the intention of settling.  However, falling ill with fever, he migrated to London in 1869 and, sponsered by Richard Bowdler Sharpe, emerged as one of the finest and most prolific birds artists of all time, illustrating over 115 books while putting his distinctive stamp on every painting.  The hand-colored lithographs on this page are cut from Richard Bowdler Sharpe and William Ogilvie-Grant's monumental Catalogue of Birds in the British Museum, London,1881-1898 .  Lithography is by Mintern Brothers. The Catalogue, according to Zimmer, is "unquestionably the most important work on systematic ornithology that has ever been published."
