Butterflies and Moths of the Wayside and Woodland

by W J Stokoe, Richard South

Condition: Near Fine/Good

London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co., Ltd, 1939 A near fine copy of the 1st edition in good wrapper. This work was designed to act as a field guide - taking key points from Richard South's three Wayside and Woodland publications: butterflies and moths - series I and II. There are some blank leaves at the end of the book for field notes and it is conveniently pocket-sized. The jacket has been price-clipped and has some edge nibbling - principally around the spine and the bottom edge at the front close to the spine, where there is loss. It has had repair and some reinforcement with archive repair tape. It is in a removable protective wrap. The blue cloth binding is very bright and clean with very slight pulling to the spine. Contents near fine clean condition.
