About this Item: W H LIZARS, Edinburgh, 1835. Decorative Cloth. Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. A fair copy of the 1st edition of British Butterflies, vol III of Entomology from the Naturalist's Library edited by Sir William Jardine. In the original publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles to the spine, with 34 plates of which 32 are hand coloured. With volume listing for the Naturalist's Library; notice from the publisher; half title; frontispiece portrait of Werner; hand coloured vignette title page; 2 further title pages; advertisement; contents listing; Memoir of Werner; text with illustrations, 2 plain plates and 32 hand coloured plates - tissue-guarded; and publishers adverts (20 pages) at the rear. The binding is complete but the spine has a couple of vertical creases and there is some chipping at the top, and general pulling. Corners are bumped. Internally the original green endpapers are present. The front endpapers have a bit of a messy repair at the joint and there is a small hole in the fep. There is the signature of Francis Hemming, the naturalist, to the fep and his bookplate to the front pastedown. There is a small black mark to the bottom side of the frontispiece mirrored on the vignette title page where there is a small piece missing from the side margin. Plate 11 is loose at the bottom gather and plate 18 has torn tissue guard. Overall contents are clean but the paper, both text and plate, is toned, particularly towards the margins.
