This hand-colored entomology engraving is from Hippolyte Lucass "Histroire Naturelle Lepidopteres d'Europe". Published in Paris in 1864 by F. Savy, the work featured almost 400 different species of butterflies. Lucas gained experience in the field of entomology while working as an apprentice for the Zoological laboratory in the Paris Museum of Natural History at the young age of 13. --- The work is in very good condition overall. There is some very light scattered foxing common to this work. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.
