Emperors, Admirals & Chimney Sweepers by Peter Marren
“The first ever comprehensive book about the naming of British butterflies and moths.
This beautiful book, written with Peter Marren’s usual wit and insight, takes you on a journey back to a time before the arts and science were divided. When entomologists were also poets and painters, and when a gift for vivid language went hand-in-hand with a deep pre-Darwinian fascination for the emerging natural world.”
