About this Item: Ferguson and Osborn, Wellington, 1950. Hard Cover. Condition: VG+. No Jacket. Plates, Drawings (illustrator). 1st. The author described this book (in a long sub-title as "A popular account of all the New Zealand cicadas. The natural history of the New Zealand glow-worm. A second supplement to the butterflies and moths of New Zealand and notes on many other native insects." George Vernon Hudson died in 1946, when the book was ready for publication, and his daugter Stella Gibbs, acting on his "comprehensive instructions" arranged for the printing of what was his seventh book, saying in her foreward that: "It seemed essential that the last of my father's books should, in every way, conform to the high standards set by his earlier works." Her success in realising that objective is evident in the finished product , a fitting tribute to the author's long study of NZ entomology. First edition of 1950, 188 pages including appendix and index, illustrated by two mono and 17 colour plates, with b/w fontis photo of G V Hudson. The first colour plate, at front, illustrates four highly magnified flying insects, with the page on which the text description is found also noted. At the back of the book the first two plates are mono, with relevant page numbers also noted. The following 16 colour plates, each with multiple images, many magnified, with the text data location also noted. (These illustrations are an outstanding feature of the book,) Several intext b/w drawings. Blue hard covers with impressed gilt cicada centre front are VG+ with light wear spine extemities, internally excellent, no inscriptions. Seller Inventory # 004679
