Wonderfully vintage hand-colorized butterfly book illustration. This fairly large-sized image has all the charm of a hand colorized image but with strong and crisp lines. This insect image of a pretty butterfly is downloadable, printable and in the public domain. It is in the public domain because it was not attributed to an illustrator and was published over 120 years ago, in 1850. The book in which it appeared was White Violets which was published by George W. Hobbs.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
