Book description
An extremely comprehensive and complete guide not only to butterflies, but also to their habitats and life cycles. There is also information on techniques to catch, kill, and display butterflies, but that should be understood considering the time when this book was written and published. Not all the plates are in color, nor are they all clear. However, the incredible wealth of knowledge contained within should not be dismissed due to antiquated observation methods.
