An Illustrated Natural History of British Butterflies and Moths

£44.99

Product description

This large and heavy book was published, we think, around 1870. The book gives detailed descriptions of British butterflies and moths and contains numerous black and white illustrations of the many species drawn by George Willis and engraved by John Kirchner.
The hard covers are rather dull and there is wear particularly along the edges and at the corners. The hinges are cracked and the binding is loosening. The pages are yellowed with age and there is some foxing, mainly affecting the first and last pages.
