Locupletissimi rerum naturalium thesauri accurata descriptio, et iconibus artificiosissimis expressio, per universam physices historiam is a comprehensive work on natural history, authored by Albertus Seba and published in four volumes between 1734 and 1765.

Seba was a Dutch pharmacist and collector, who was particularly interested in the natural world. He assembled one of the most extensive natural history collections of his time, which included specimens of plants, animals, and minerals from around the world. Seba's collection served as the basis for the illustrations and descriptions found in Locupletissimi rerum naturalium thesauri.

The book includes over 4000 illustrations of specimens from Seba's collection, many of which were created by leading artists of the time. The illustrations cover a wide range of topics, including plants, animals, fossils, and minerals. The text provides detailed descriptions of each specimen, along with information on its geographic origin and natural history.

The butterfly section in Locupletissimi rerum naturalium thesauri is significant because it represents one of the earliest attempts to systematically document and illustrate the diversity of butterflies around the world. The illustrations in the book were influential in their time, and many later naturalists and artists drew on Seba's work as a reference. Many of them were created by leading artists of the time, including Johann Jakob Scheuchzer, Georg Dionysius Ehret, and Cornelius Nozeman.
