Other insects
In this section we have insects and other land invertebrates not covered in the other categories. They come from several publications and have a wide range of prices.

 

Rössl zu Esper
Some of the finest insect prints ever produced are hand-coloured copper engravings by Rössl zu Esper. The plates were printed separately on high quality paper and then glued onto the pages of the book. For each species, the plates show the male and female as well as juvenile instars or detailed parts of the insect. The captions are the Latin name in the Linnaean system and the common Dutch name. We do not have details of the book from which these plates com, but from the style and the paper it would appear to be c 1770.
The plates measure 165 x 125 mm, the pages 260 x 187 mm. They are in excellent condition.
