About this book

The wonder and beauty of butterflies and moths - including their miraculous transformations - have fascinated nature enthusiasts for thousands of years. Rendered from an exquisitely rare nineteenth-century portfolio, the butterfly hues and shapes that have dazzled humankind for centuries are displayed here with magnificent precision.

This illustrated archive bursts with full colour plates of European butterflies and moths of every variety. Revel in the vast spectrum of intricate markings distinct to such species as the Swallowtail, Monarch, Painted Lady, Red Admiral, and many other fluttering favourites.

Details of pupa, eyes, antennae, and the winged insects' favourite plant life also abound, providing enlightening glimpses into the workings of some of nature's most colourful and resplendent creatures.

Original selection of plates from 'European Butterflies and Moths', originally published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co., London, 1882.
