Comprising 'Life of the Caterpillar', `Life of the Spider', `Life of the Fly', `Bramble Bees and others' and `The Mason Bees.' Classic Fabre, available again as a Pisces CD-book.
From the publisher's announcement:
Fabre's 5 volumes were translated by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos, Fellow of the Zoological Society of London, and originally published by Hodder and Stoughton between 1912 and 1916. They represent a considerable body of research and many years of observation, and as such are invaluable to anyone with an interest in the subjects.
We have published all 5 under the title "Collected Essays, Volume 1", which is now available on CD, 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 book is in Adobe Acrobat pdf format (with free Reader software supplied), allowing high-quality printing of the text and images.
