Old Insect Catalogues

Post by 58chevy »

I noticed a recent post that showed an old butterfly catalogue. I'd like to see more of them, so show us yours. Here are some of mine. I'll show more of them later.

Lovely idea for a thread. Amazed at the age of some of your catalogues.
Here is another page from the Worldwide Butterflies catalogue from Feb 1994. I highlighted the specimens I bought from this page. Have also included a picture of the specimens themselves. Although the P montrouzieri was listed from Timor the specimen itself has the correct data from New Caledonia
