About This Item

EDINBURGH: W H Lizars, S Highley et al, 1841 A very good to near fine copy of the 1st edition of Exotic Moths in the original publisher's cloth binding. With listing of the Naturalist's Library; black and white engraved frontispiece of Latreille; hand coloured vignette title page; 2 further title pages; an advert; contents listing; Memoir of Latreille; text; 2 black and white plates relating to Latreille; and 30 further plates of which 29 are hand coloured and one is double size. The binding has had an expert cloth case repair relaying the spine and is therefore sound and tight. There is some fading to the spine and board edges. The original green endpapers are present with repair to joints. The contents are very clean with well coloured plates. Light toning to page edges.
