Ringlet Butterflies 1833 Regency Sir William Jardine Naturalist Library Natural History Engraving, Pl 26

by PetitPoulailler

Small Ringlets - What a lovely name for sweet butterflies!

With 2 views each, the 3 beauties are featured on a fantastic natural history hand-colored engraving gleaned from William Jardine's 1833 volume on entomology.

These three fluttering beauties were gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1833 'The Naturalist's Library: Entomology'. In shabby hues of lavender and moss and bark brown, the beautiful butterflies are featured and have been finely etched and published by William H. Lizars of Edinburgh and featuring -

Small Ringlet [Hipparchia Davus]
Marsh Ringlet [Hipparchia Polydama]
Small Heath [Hipparchia Pamphilus]

The heavy paper, top edged in gold, is blank on its reverse, measures 4.125" x 6.375" (10x16 cm) and the protective tissue guard is here but has come unattached from the engraving. The paper is smooth and clean, the paper edges are clear and unmarked, with the corner tips have softened.

The hand-coloring is clear and vivid and exact and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks. A beautiful subject to frame and gift or perhaps you'll use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, to keep in that growing scrap-book 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.
