Butterflies JAB203 $135
Each print measures
approximately 8 ½ inches by 7 ½ inches
These beautiful hand coloured copper plate engravings are from a rare work by Carl Gustav Jablonsky entitled Natursystem aller bekannten in-und ausländischen Insecten. It was one of the earliest and most comprehensive classifications of butterflies and insects according to the Linnaean taxonomy. Jablonsky (1756-1787) was also the private secretary to the Queen Elizabeth of Prussia. Sadly, he died at the age of 31 and his work was complete by another German entymologist Johann F. W. Herbst.
The plate measures approximately 10 1/8 inches by 7 5/8 inches, with original hand colouring
& intact plate marks. This work is one of the most attractively illustrated entomological works of the period, with brilliant hand colouring and fine engraving.
