About this Item

First published in 1890, this book is the second edition from 1891. "Illustrated with ten hand colored plates, in which are given at least two hand-colored figures for each species. In preparing a second edition of this book, I have not considered it advisable to make any changes in either the text or plates that appeared in the first edition. The present volume, however, contains an Appendix in which are given descriptions of one hundred and five species and sub-species of Butterflies that occur in North America, east of the Mississippi River. These descriptions are mainly comparative, and the text is accompanied by two hand colored plates, on whcih are figured some of the species described. It has been my endeavor in this work, to present recognizable figures, and intelligeble descriptions, of the Butterflies whihc occur in new England. The drawings and descriptions of the perfect insects are original, but I have been obliged to compile descriptions of the larva and pupa from works of various authors who have written upon the subject." GOOD HARDCOVER, ex-library withdrawn, hand colored plates are fine (no library marking are present on plates), the description page for Plate two has separated from the book. Few text pages has some short tears, also text description for Plate VIII has partially separated from the binding. Book has been collated and determined to be complete. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 018104
