Antique Victorian Butterfly Engraving 1833 Sir William Jardine Natural History Featuring the Small Ringlet, Pl 26
Antique 1833 Wm Jardine Victorian Naturalist Library Hand Colored Engraving Featuring Ringlet and Heath Butterflies
What a lovely name for a sweet butterfly! These 3 fluttering beauties were gleaned from Sir William Jardine's 1833 butterfly reference.
The three butterflies (with 2-views each) are studies in shabby hues of lavender and moss and bark brown and have been finely etched and published by William H. Lizars of Edinburgh, *the* engraver of his time ~
Hipparchia Davus. Small Ringlet
Hipparchia Polydama. Marsh Ringlet
Hipparchia Pamphilus. Small Heath
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, top-tipped in gold, and measures 4.125" x 6.375" (11x17 cm).
The tissue guard remains attached and there is little tanning to betray its 175+ years. The edges are smooth and clear and there are no tears, folds, creases, or marks on the paper.
A beautiful subject to frame or use in your art ~ it's a lovely antique paper.
