Beetles Butterflys Moths and Other Insects by Kappel and Kirby 1893. A book on the collection and preservation of these creatures which of course would not be done today.. It does however give detailed discriptions of the many species and has twelve lovely colour plates illustrating them. The cover is actually brown and not red as it would appear in the photograph and is a little bruised with age. The end papers are are browned as are the edges of some of the pages. There is a hand written presentation inscription inside the front cover dated 1898-9. There is no dust jacket. I believe 1893, as this book is dated, is the original year of publication.
