Seven beautiful butterfly-moths, including the beautiful Versicolor Skipper [Mimoniades versicolor], are featured on a stunning 1897 hand colored engraving from Lloyd's Victorian natural history entomology reference -
Skipper moth [Entheus talaus]
Skipper moth [Eudamus brachius]
Banana Skipper [Erionota thrax]
Versicolor Skipper [Mimoniades versicolor]
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 4.75" x 7.125 (12x18 cm), and shows little tanning since the protective tissue cover remains attached. The paper is clean and without creases, folds, marks, or tears.
The engraving is bold and strong, the colors are color rich, vivid, and bright. This will be a gorgeous engraving to frame and gift to the collector you love. Perhaps you'll keep as a perfect addition to your at-the-ready ephemera supply. Use in your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, jewelry creations, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1897 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st class mail.
