In very good condition, and in the scarce dust wrapper here is a lovely vintage copy of The Caterpillars of the British Butterflies Including The Eggs, Chrysalids and Food-Plants. This copy was published in 1944 by Frederick Warne & Co., Ltd of London. With 348 illustrations, 68 of which are in full colour. 

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound. The outside edges are speckled blue as published and these have some tanning/spotting. Has an inked name and address on the front free endpaper. I have partially obscured this in the photos for data protection.

Bound in petrol blue faux leather boards. In excellent condition, having been well protected by the jacket.

The dust wrapper itself if is in very good order for a book of this age. With just some very slight edge wear creasing and a couple of nicks. The spine has tanned a bit in comparison to the front and back.

Your vintage copy of The Caterpillars of the British Butterflies will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and will be sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel. 

H 17.5 cm x W 13.5 cm, 248 pages, 0.34 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging, please add a note to the order.
