A lifetime of patient study and observation has culminated in a text which is both comprehensive and unique in its blend of originality, precision and charm.

In addition to illustrations and descriptions, the volume contains an introduction on taxonomy, classification and life-histories; Notes on collection and mounting of butterflies; a complete Glossary of scientific term, an Appendix on the lives of the discoverers; Indexes of popular, scientific and botanic names, a map with geographic index showing territories of species, and a bibliography of all significant butterfly literature to date."--Jacket.
