Pierre-Hippolyte Lucas (17 January 1814 – 5 July 1899) was a French entomologist.

Lucas was an assistant-naturalist at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. His most notable work was on exotic butterflies.  From 1839 to 1842 he studied fauna as part of the scientific commission on the exploration of Algeria.

The beauty of the engravings and their gorgeous colours makes Lucas's "Histoire Naturelle des Lepidopteres Exotiques" an exceptional work.

Here are some of his engravings of butterflies for you to choose from. They are original antique prints from 1834 with superb hand painted colouring.
