Please note that the sheet and plate sizes for British Entomology were:

Sheet:   9 x 6 ins   (245 x 155 mm)
Plate:    8 x 5 ins         (205 x 125 mm)

Because of the ultra-high resolution techniques used and the extremely
fine detail of this particular print, we normally print this image slightly
enlarged so as to fit on an A4 sheet . At original size much of the fine
detail is invisible without the use of a magnifying glass. If, however,
you prefer your print to be at the original plate size please be sure to
let us know when ordering.
