Entomology 1833 Regency Sir William Jardine Naturalist Library Title Page Victorian Engraving

by PetitPoulailler

From Victorian England, here is the title page from Sir William Jardine Naturalist Library Entomology volume, showcasing -

Endymion Butterfly
Condomanus Butterfly

Beautiful South American butterflies, along with a colorful, unidentified but quite hungry-looking little lizard - the engraving is the work of William Hope Lizars of Edinburgh, *the* engraver of his time.

The heavy paper, top edged in gold, is blank on its reverse, measures 4.125" x 6.375" (10x16 cm), and shows gentle all over tanning. The paper is smooth and clean, the paper edges are clear and unmarked, with the corner tips only just softened. The hand coloring is bright and vivid and exact and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks.

Please note: Somewhere along the past 180 years, someone decided to 'erase' something either printed or handwritten on the page, immediately beneath the title. I've detailed and highlighted this erasure (on the computer image only!) in the listing's photos.

A beautiful subject to frame for your home decor or gift to the butterfly collector your love. Or perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, that ever-growing paper stash you love.

You are purchasing an original 1833 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
