Stephen William Silver (1819-1905) was a wealthy London timber merchant who assembled a fine collection of New Zealand bird specimens. They were exhibited at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition of 1886 and this publication is in effect a catalogue of the collection. His fine library subsequently became known as the York Gate Library and was purchased in 1905 by the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia, Adelaide.
