The Aurelian: or Natural History of English Insects; Namely Moths & Butterflies…

This exquisite entomology engraving is from Moses Harris’s The Aurelian: or Natural History of English Insects; Namely Moths & Butterflies… This is from the Henry Bohn edition published in London in 1840. This Bohn edition was considered greatly improved with editing done by J. O. Westwood and brighter, superbly hand-colored engravings.

Moses Harris (1730-c1788) was “one of the most outstanding authors of entomological literature during the eighteenth century.” (Lisney) His work is considered “a timeless classic” and the “most celebrated of all the early books about butterflies and moths.” (Salmon)
