This first edition, hand-colored lithograph comes from Henry Dresser’s A Monograph of the Coraciidae, or Family of the Rollers. The work was published in London by the author in 1893. The plates were by the acclaimed artist J. G. Keulemans. The roller is a solitary forest bird that largely came from the Ethiopian region. The name roller was developed from observing their movements in courtship in fights.
