Edited by Bowdler Sharpe
The pages of this Edward Lloyd book were created on heavy art paper.
The very old prints (in perfect condition) are originals from the book
from Edward Lloyd. London, 1896.
Brightly colored attractive plates of butterflies and moths, both British and exotic, are very clean, no foxing. The volumes these 2 chromolithographs came from were issued as part of a five volume set; the first two volumes and a portion of the third volume were dedicated to butterflies; the remainder of the set dealt with moths.
