Cassell. Plate 58. From European Butterflies and Moths. 

London: Cassell & Co., 1898.  10 1/2 x 8 1/4 (paper size).  Chromolithograph.  Very good condition.

A print from a series of charming prints illustrating the complex varieties of European butterflies and moths.  Each plate presents several types, shown as well in their successive stages of development.  The insects are posed against the native flora that is their characteristic habitat.  The refined drawing and delicate hand coloring meet well the challenge of these intricate and beautiful creatures, making for both educational and lovely images.  These are prints that do proud the flourishing art of 19th-century natural history illustration.
