Original copper engraving, finely hand colored when published. Fine hand colored copper engraving published in Moses Harris ,Aurelian', London at Henry G. Bohn 1840. The Bohn edition is well known for its fine coloring and its excellent paper quality. „Harris was encouraged in entomology from a young age by his uncle, a member of the Society of the Aurelians. In 1762 he became secretary of a second Society of Aurelians. He was a skilled artist, displaying some of his insect drawings at the Royal Academy in 1785. He drew and engraved illustrations for books including Dru Drury's Illustrations of Natural History (3 volumes, 1770–1782) and John Coakley Lettsom's The Naturalist's and Traveller's Companion (1772)."
