"De uitlandsche kapellen: voorkomende in de drie waereld-deelen Asia, Africa en America = Papillons exotiques des trois parties du monde, l'Asie, l'Afrique et l'Amérique"

S.J. Baalde (Amsterdam) and Barthelemy Wild (Utrecht) 1779

Volume 1 (title page dated 1779; includes pt. 1-7 issued in 1775, and pt. 8 issued in 1776). 2 added title leaves; 2 letterpress title leaves; subscriber list ([4] p.]); dedication: xxx p.; preface: 16 p.; text and index: 155 p. (errata on p. 155); plates I-XCVI. [1]

Each print measures approximately 9 inches wide by 11 inches tall. Copper plate engravings by Gerrit Wartenaar Lambertz. Hand-coloring. Parallel text in Dutch and French.


Most of the specimens used by Cramer and Stoll to describe over 1,650 new butterfly species are lost or destroyed so the illustations have a special scientific status as 'iconotypes'.
