Nest of the Lecheguana Bees 1843 Victorian Sir William Jardine 'Naturalist Library' Antique Hand-Colored Engraving, Pl 28

by PetitPoulailler

Gleaned from the Sir William Jardine's 1843 'Naturalist Library' volume on entomology, here is an hand-colored engraving featuring the nest of the Lecheguana Bee, the Mexican Honey Wasp. The engraving is finely etched and published by William H. Lizars, a leading engraver from Edinburgh. The plates is captioned -

Nest of the Lecheguana (Polistes Lat.) [With the Insect magnified double its natural size]

The heavy, gold-edged paper is blank on its reverse and measures 4.25" x 6.5" (11x17 cm). The paper shows gentle edge-tanning with smooth, clear edges and corner tips gently softened. There are no tears, folds, creases, or marks.

A wonderfully unique paper to frame and gift to that bee loving gardener you adore or perhaps you'll use in your art: card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage, a wonderful addition to your ever-growing and never big enough paper stash.

You are purchasing an original 1843 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
