Very old and magnificent color lithograph of butterflies - illustration of heterocera (heterocera in latin), including the bicolarata, of the suborder geometrae - this plate is an original from 1887. It is not a copy but a engraving over 130 years old! - size: 28 X 21 cm - a detailed and realistic work from a specialized book; with around thirty different species illustrated - the condition of the engraving is very good: slightly worn, soiled edges. Once framed, it will no longer be visible and will give a beautiful vintage effect. - discount for the purchase of several boards: contact me the size is ideal for framing. It fits perfectly in a standard frame. The paper used is high quality, cream colored. Often colored manually, the colors are vibrant, sharp and well contrasted: remarkable work. Please note, the back is without text or image. The author of the work is dr. E. Hofmann, a famous entomologist (1837 - 1892) specializing in insects, particularly lepidoptera (lepidoptera). His entomology collections, butterfly are held at the natural history museum in london and by the national museum of natural history in washington. Rhopalocera (or “moths” in the common sense) are an ancient suborder of lepidoptera. It is opposed to heterocera (heterocera, or “moths”). Board number: 67. - shipping possible - contact me for a purchase of several boards: reduction and single shipping costs. - I offer other boards from the same series, to be found in my shop - do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
