In good condition here is a vintage copy of The Butterflies of the British Isles by Richard South. Published in 1947 by Frederick Warne & Co., London. Extensively illustrated in colour and black and white (see photos). In total there are 450 colour figures and 120 diagrams in black and white. 

Inside the book opens onto a prize bookplate on the front paste down (see photos), with a small pencilled name opposite at the top of the front free endpaper. Cracks open at the hinge in a few places to reveal webbing, and giving the front board a mild wobble, but the binding of the text block is good and strong. The outside closed edges have some mild tanning and toning. The book has a very slight lean.

Blue cloth covered boards have gilt decoration to the front and spine. All in top order. The gilt on the spine has dulled just a little in comparison to the sparkling front and there is some mild rounding to the corners, else very good.

Your vintage copy of The Butterflies of the British Isles, will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and 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, 212 pages, 0.42 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK, with the exception of a small number of countries.

* 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.
