Butterflies & Moths

Charles Henry Dessalines d'Orbigny Fine Art Lepidopterology Prints

This beautiful collection of lepidopterology prints were originally illustrated by the French botanist and geologist Charles Henry Dessalines d'Orbigny. The 'Dictionnaire Universel d'Histoire Naturelle' was edited by d'Orbigny and is considered by many to be one of the most comprehensive natural history encyclopedias ever written.

Vintage Butterfly & Moth Fine Art Prints

We bring you a carefully chosen selection of just some of the 288 hand coloured engravings included in Histoire, not only butterflies and moths, but also mammals, birds, insects, and many other wonders of the natural world.
