~6,500 color photos, faunal region map, generic index. This book is a synopsis of author's Butterflies of the World series, prepared from the comprehensive collection of the Natural History Museum, London. It includes systematics of those larger volumes, plus additions and corrections. To compress as much information as possible in a single, portable book, color illustrations are reduced to a standard scale of 65% natural size. Accompanying text, while not running synchronously with plates, is brief and telegraphic in style. Book covers: 1) biology, classification, history, and author's philosophy of science; 2) systematic text dealing with nearly all butterfly genera, including new genera and species. Each genus is represented by at least one species, numbered and cross-referenced to plates; 3) color photographs of ~6,500 specimens, each captioned, numbered, and cross-referenced to text. Many figures are divided in half, with either verso or opposite sex comprising the other half. Sections are divided into faunal regions, identified by color-code at top of the page. Bottom of the page indicates the family figured on that page. Hardcover; 8-1/4 x 11".
