Product Description

GRIZZLED SKIPPER

DUSKY SKIPPER

PYRGUS OILEUS

Published London 1841 in "British Butterflies and their Transformations" by H.N.Humphries and J.O.Westwood.

An original untitled 19th century hand coloured lithograph of various butterfly species with their caterpillars and chrysalis.

The butterflies are beautifully and artistically depicted on their associated plant habitats. The plant and insect species are identified by number on the back of the print.

The original hand colouring is enhanced in places with gum arabic to represent the scaly sheen of the insect's wings.

The depth of colour achieved is difficult to appreciate from the images provided and this would be an attractive print for framing and display.

Fine, clean condition other than minor age related blemishes which would mostly be masked off when mounting/matting.

Free of repairs or restoration, printed on robust heavy grade paper, blank verso. 

 Approx. 10.5" x 8" (270mm x 200mm) overall.
