Naturalist's Miscellany Plate 251 Postcard
Locusts are infamous for their voracious appetite, and are considered a pestilence to farmers and historians. Rarely examined for their physical beauty, the Egyptian locust is frozen here in all its anatomical intricacy.
This postcard features an illustrated bookplate 251 from The Naturalist's Miscellany Volume 2 by George Shaw (1789-1813), sourced from Museums Victoria's own collection of rare books. A miniature version of our exclusive print, this postcard makes a great missive, decoration or memento.
