Fabre, J.H. FABRE'S BOOK OF INSECTS 1937- Color plates by renowned artist Edward Julius Detmold
New York Tudor 1937 Hardcover Quarto, xii, 271pp. First published in 1921, this is the seventh printing of the 1935 new edition. The book is "retold from Alexander Teixeira de Mattos' translation of Fabre's "Souvenirs Entomologiques" by Mrs. Rodolph Stawell."There are 12 tipped-on tissue-guarded and captioned color plates by renowned artist Edward Julius Detmold, famous for his illustrations for Aesop's Fables, Arabian Nights and The Jungle Book. The plates still have the original tissue overlay in perfect condition. A superb contribution to the world of natural history, showing individually the sacred beetle, the cicada, the praying mantis, penelopaeus spirifex, the psyches, the Spanish copris, the white- faced dectitus, common wasps, the field cricket, the sisyphus, Italian locusts, and the anthrax fly. This is a particularly fine copy, brilliantly clean and unmarked, green cloth with gilt decorations, unmarked except for the slightest of shelf-rubbing on the bottom edge. Corners bumped/slightly worn to spine edge. Binding is solid and pages are very bright and clean. Pages are heavy and good quality without any rips or folds.
