Emperors, Admirals and Chimney Sweepers by Peter Marren - Little Toller Books
The first ever comprehensive book about the naming of British butterflies and moths. This beautiful book, written with Peter Marren’s usual wit and insight, takes you on a journey back to a time before the arts and science were divided. When entomologists were also poets and painters, and when a gift for vivid language went hand-in-hand with a deep pre-Darwinian fascination for the emerging natural world.Hardback | 216mm x 170mm | 282 pagesJacket artwork by Bea Forshall
