Entomologica Edinensis or a description and history of the insects found in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh. Coleoptera

by James Wilson and James Duncan

Condition: Good/N


London: William Blackwood, 1834 A good copy of this extremely scarce work. In the original plain cloth binding with paper labels to spine. The binding is sound but with wear at the spine and general discolouration and some cloth bubbling. Light indentation to sides of boards ? from being bound in string bundle. Internally has title page with blind stamp of University of Aberdeen Natural History Dept; 2 plain plates; errata and text including Addenda, Notes and Index 351pp. Probably lacking half title. The endpapers are very spotty and the text pages have light toning - more so at the beginning of the work. However, some text is unopened and it is in very clean condition.
