Charming hand-coloured 18th century moth illustrations found in EJC Esper's 'Die Schmetterlinge in Abbildungen nach der Natur' [vol. 4] from 1786, sourced from the University of Heidelberg. [some background]
Alternatively, the Biodiversity Library appears to have the full[?] series available.
See an earlier EJC Esper post -- The Coral Book -- for more general background and links.
