This antique Beetle engraving was made in Europe in the 1860's and was hand colored. The print measures 5 3/4" high x 9 5/8" wide ( 14.5cm x 24.5cm) and is in very good condition. The drawings were made by J. Stewart and the engraving was made by J. Bishop. The details are clear and sharp and the colors are rich. Some of the beetles in the print are: Hercules, Striped, Splendid, Beautiful Capricorn and Scarabaeus Tityus. There is very little age-appropriate toning at the edges and a little smudge near the insect in the upper right corner. In the full photo the edges look darker than the middle but are just as light as the middle edge.
