. Berlin, E. S. Mittler und Sohn, 1860-1861. 8vo. xiii, 223, vii, 494 pp., ten plates. Contemporary half vellum over paper covered boards, spine with red morocco label with gilt title.l A unique copy of a very rare work with several original hand-coloured drawings of caterpillars tipped in next to their descriptions. This was probably the work of Josef Machacek whose entomo-botanical bookplate is pasted on the front pastedown. Another entomological bookplate, of Hans Malicky, is pasted on the front flyleaf. The work forms a part of "Die Pflanzen und Raupen Deutschlands und Versuch einer lepidopterologischen Botanik". A very good copy with unique additional illustrations and an interesting provenance. Cat. BM(NH) p. 2321; Horn-Schenkling, 24177..
