An Epitome of the Natural History of the Insects of China. By E. Donovan1798.

Source of the original : This Heritage Facsimile Edition print is made from an extremely well-preserved early museum original subscription which has been cared for in the hands of this one owner only – Teylers Museum (the oldest museum of the Netherlands).

Museum Quality: The proofs of our prints are carefully compared and corrected with the originals and the final prints always have the original size. As a result, the naked eye is unable to distinguish the originals from the facsimile prints when framed and glazed.

Durability: To ensure the durability, our facsimiles are printed on acid-free white-edged paper with archive inks. Each facsimile has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every lithographic plate or engraving; every delicate brushstroke of every original.

About the Original: Apart from occasional excursions in England and Wales Donovan never left London. For An Epitome of the Natural History of the Insects of China he obtained specimens and information from George Macartney a British envoy to China. It is the first publication dealing exclusively with the insects of China. Donovan personally undertook all steps of the illustration process for his books, the drawing, the etching and engraving and the hand colouring) which are not visible. At other times the fineness of his engraving and etching is apparent giving his illustrations the appearance of being watercolours.
