Leaf through the pages of this exquisitely illustrated book for a tour of the strange and exotic insect world. Pairing over 600 Victorian engravings, woodcuts, and drawings with informative profiles, authors Claire Beverley and David Ponsonby show us insects through the eyes of the early naturalists.
The fascinating text throughout tells of entomologists' quest that was fraught with intrigue, fierce competition, and far-reaching travels. You'll be privy to the discovery, classification, and habitat of these colourful creatures, and you'll learn of their complex construction. Arranged by type and covering nearly all the families from bees and moths to ants and flies, "The Anatomy of Insects & Spiders" will open your eyes to detail that's normally seen only under a microscope.
