Description

A boy and a girl are seen swishing their nets through a flock of butterflies, framed by a decorative border made of grass, wild flowers, and cobwebs.

Three names are associated with this series of illustrations, and while L. Frølich and C.-É. Matthis are unambiguously mentioned, respectively, as the illustrator and the engraver (see the French edition), the role imparted to Gillot (probably Firmin Gillot, 1819-1872) isn’t so clear. One possibility is that he traced on wood the designs created by Frølich.
