Purple Emperor Butterfly 1833 Regency Sir William Jardine Antique Naturalist Library Engraving, Pl 21

by PetitPoulailler

Purple Emperor Butterfly [Apatura Iris]

Two views of this gorgeous butterfly which is found throughout Europe and Great Britain, are captured on a gorgeous hand-colored engraving gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1833 'The Naturalist's Library' Entomology volume.

The heavy paper is top-tipped in gold, blank on its reverse, and measures 4.25" x 6.5" (10x17 cm). The paper shows only gentle tanning since the protective tissue remains attached. The edges are clean and clear and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A beautiful subject to frame for your home decor or use in your art - tag and card creations, scrap-book page making, collage.

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.
