Larvae of the British Butterflies & Moths
A fantastic reissue on CD of the historic volumes. All 9 volumes are now available in parts or as a complete set.
From the publisher's announcement:
William Buckler's 9 volumes on the larvae of the butterflies and moths represented a monumental feat of artistry over nearly 30 years. Published by the Ray Society between 1885 and 1899, the 9 volumes cover the known British species of butterflies and moths at the time. Some of the nomenclature has since changed, but the species and life-cycle descriptions and the 164 plates of hand-coloured illustrations remain invaluable, although they are rarely seen.
Pisces Conservation are delighted to release these volumes in electronic form, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation.
The quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent.
The books are in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.
In addition, the plates are available separately on the CD as high-resolution images.
