Now Published! British Butterflies - A History in Books


The Entomologist's Library


Sponsor of
UK Butterflies
AuthorF W FROHAWK
TitleVARIETIES OF BRITISH BUTTERFLIES
Description(1938) 1948 reprint, 199 pages including 48 colour plates, (illustrations include specimens of aberrations, gynandromorphs, albinism and melanism), a good copy with very clean plates but some minor foxing on the endpapers, Frohawk’s final book. (The plates of the first edition printing were lost during the Second World War in 1941 and a reprint issued later. Very few copies of the first edition exist. It is easily identified - on the frontispiece opposite the title-page under the figures of the Purple Emperor the caption word "Ex" appears at the end of the first line, but in the reprint the word is at the beginning of the second line. The plates are printed on better quality, less fibrous, paper and the weave of the cloth binding is coarser). Ward Lock & Co.
