TitlePINAX RERUM NATURALIUM BRITANNICARUM, CONTINENS VEGETABILIA, ANIMALIA ET FOSSILIA in hac Insula reperta inchoatus
Description1667, 12vo, the first issue of the 2nd edition, dedication, preface, 223pp, references, text in Latin, original full calf binding, raised bands and gilt decorated panels on spine, small chip missing from head of spine and no front end-paper, (Lisney 43) T Roycroft. The Pinax is an important work as it was the first list of the flora and fauna of Britain. The section on butterflies and moths contains brief sentences to describe each species but these are often vague and, even with reference back to Moffett’s work, identification cannot always be certain
