Beetles, from Jardine's Naturalist's Library

These steel engravings by William H Lizars are from The Naturalist's Library by Sir William Jardine, printed in 1884. The hand colouring is contemporary with the time the drawings were printed.

All come with some description of the beetles attached to the back of the print.

 

Print Size: (approx) 3.75" x 6" (9.5cm x 15cm). Mounted size: 8" x 10" (approx 20.5cm x 25.5cm), in Russian green.  (Three are landscape, so swap the sizing round for those.)

They are all in pretty good condition for their age with very few marks.  The hand colouring remains vibrant and bright.
