Summary
"To accompany the paintings are descriptions of comparable quality. A lifetime of patient study and observation has culminated in a text which is both comprehensive and unique in its blend of originality, precision and charm. Many of the behaviour-patterns described here have never before been recorded. To facilitate identification, there are comprehensive cross-references from text to illustralion and from illustration to text. In addition to illustrations and descriptions, the volume contains an introduction on taxonomy, classification and life-histories; Notes on collection and mounting of butterflies; a complete Glossary of scientific term, an Appendix on the lives of the discoverers; Indexes of popular, scientific and botanic names, a map with geographic index showing territories of species, and a bibliography of all significant butterfly literature to date."--BOOK JACKET.
