About this book

The first published county moth list for Northamptonshire since that published by Eustace Wallis (1908-1912). Species accounts of the 648 species of larger moths recorded in the county, 90% of them illustrated. 30 habitats reviewed in detail; short historical biographies of some of the county's better known recorders; gazeteer of place names mentioned in the text.

"[...] John, and his wife Brenda, who typed and laid out the book, are to be congratulated on compiling a huge amount of information into such a concise and clear volume [...] I find the contents particularly interesting because I live in the county and record moths widely there, but the book will interest all moth recorders in neighbouring counties, and those who collect county lists throughout the British Isles. Only 150 copies have been produced, so I suggest you order soon to make sure of your copy."
– Paul Waring, lepidopterist
