Illustrated by Richard Lewington and Tom Freed
This volume describes in detail all 111 species of butterfly on the British and Irish lists (including rare migrants), and illustrates both sexes of most species and many aberrations. The text has been slightly revised.
'The plates are superb. In the richness of colour and exquisite detail, they must surely be the most accurate illustrations of British butterflies ever printed.' Sir David Attenborough, on the hardback edition.
