We are very pleased to present this wonderful selection of prints from the “German Butterflies, with consideration of all the genera of Europe”.   These are rare and beautiful images from this very scarce work on butterflies by Dr J. C. Kayser. 

The work has 152 hand colored engravings of the utmost beauty and delicacy.  As aficionados of butterfly & moths prints, we consider these amongst the best, with vivid colors that truly capture the evanescence and fragility of these fabulous insects. Many plates depict the caterpillars & feeding plants & merge the scientific & the decorative aspects in a rare symphony of beauty.   References:  Horn & Schenkling II, 11555; Nissen ZBI, 2169

Each print measures approximately 6 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches.  The paper is a thick, high quality paper, creamy in color with strong plate marks.   The condition of the prints is excellent, with the very occasional light fox mark, mostly in the margins & easy to frame out. They are all beautifully hand colored engravings. There is no descriptive text.  Please inspect the image carefully, as it is very accurate. These prints are about 150 years old.
