Antoine-Charles Vauthier (1790 Paris - 1879 Paris) was a French entomologist, botanist, author and natural history illustrator. His brother Jules-Antoine Vauthier was also a prominent artist of his day. Their father was Michel Vauthier, a miniaturist at Versailles and later a publisher and art dealer in Paris.

Vauthier was a collector of plants and insects in Brazil, arriving in Rio de Janeiro in December 1831 and returning to France, arriving at the port of Toulon on 21 May 1833.

He wrote a number of books, including "Description of a new species of arachnid of the genus Epeira, of M. Walckenaer" (1825). Vauthier illustrated several books written by his brother-in-law Achille Richard. Vauthier also depicted many animals and is commemorated in some 40 species names.

A few minor spots and lightly dusty.
