Enjoying moths

£60.00

Product description

In Victorian times, moths were very popular with collectors, and rarities sold at auction for hefty sums. Fortunately, today's enthusiast prefers to study and enjoy live moths in their natural habitat, rather than gloat over rows of dead, dried specimens. Ecology and conservation are now the keynotes, with modern colour photography providing the permanent record of exciting finds. This excellent book presents a fascinating insight into the study of moths. It offers much more than the various identification guides currently available. This is no dry academic tome. Roy Leverton conveys his lifelong enthusiasm for moths in an immensely readable, easygoing style, while the text is liberally illustrated with line drawings and the author's own superb photographs of living moths.

T & A D Poyser, 2001. !st edition. 276 pp. With dust jacket. Lavishly illustrated book of natural history. Book condition: as new. DJ condition: good. Tight square copy, possibly unread. Text clean and bright. Free from inscription or annotation. 2 small tears to DJ at top of spine, otherwise unblemished.
