Daniel Good Rare Books and Engravings
1854 Pease lith; Emmons - Butterflies Danaus - hand coloured stone lithograph
Published by New York Dept of Agriculture in ca 1830, these fine folios are rare in good condition. The gum arabica used to stabilise the colouring left many of these engraving with marked staining, which is not evident in our example. As such rare.
