- Horn & Schenkling 20145 & 20733; Landwehr, Col. plates 182 & 202; Nissen, ZBI 3808, 3808a & 3808b. Complete set of one of the finest and best-illustrated works on butterflies and moths ever published, here together with the continuations by Snellen van Vollenhoven and Brants, and the rare supplement by Snellen with unpublished manuscript additions. Work on the publication probably began around 1728 and stopped only two hundred years later, when Brants, the author of the third series, died in 1928, leaving his work unfinished. He published only 10 parts of the first volume of the third series. Altogether the set includes 610 plates and 8 frontispieces, all coloured by a contemporary hand. Most plates show a single species of butterfly or moth in flight and on a plant, along with the larva and pupa, and many add the egg and further figures with anatomical details.With library stamp on flyleaf of ad 1 (1st vol.) and on the final pastedown mentioning the purchase at Asher in 1956. Some occasional foxing and browning in ad 1, 2 and 5, otherwise good; ad 3 untrimmed; Bindings and wrappers all somewhat rubbed, but otherwise in good condition and all still firm. A celebrated and beautifully illustrated lepidopterological classic. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
