Wow. Have not seen such historical rarities such as these for sale for some time. That Le Moult Urania sloanus is really something to behold. I wonder what the price will reach. Thank you for the link.
Some of the offerings seem to be terrific bargains ! I was looking at one lot #1047 which offers 10 boxes of Palearctic + Exotic Pieridae at only 150-200 Euro. Also, on lot #1055 a nice cabinet with 22 boxes of Palearctic butterflies + moths very neatly and nicely arranged for 400-500 Euro. Stunning.... Of coarse, if somebody has a fancy for Carabidae there is certainly tons of great choices -- almost too many.... Well, our European collector friends will certainly have a good go at some of the nice offerings and will save tremendously on shipping costs.
This is an auction and the prices are only estimated. For example Urania sloanus is estimated to be sold for €1000-1500 but I strongly believe it will sell for much more. If €1500 would be the selling price I could be already on my way to Paris.
