That's incredible. Dating back to the 50s !!
Worldwide Butterflies here in the U.K. was founded in 1960.
Here is the oldest catalogue I have from 1977.

I wonder if the Queen or other members of the royal family were interested in butterflies.

I saw a documentary where one of the Queen's clergy was interviewed and he mentioned her interest in butterflies. I also believe the Duke of Edinburgh also took an interest in entomology in general.
The silk for Princess Diana's wedding dress was produced from silk worms reared at Compton House.
Have attached the article about that from another booklet about World Wide Butterflies
