William Buckler's 9 volumes on the larvae of the butterflies and moths represented a monumental feat of artistry over
nearly 30 years. Published by the Ray Society between 1885 and 1899, the 9 volumes cover the known British species of
butterflies and moths at the time. Some of the nomenclature has since changed, but the species and life-cycle
descriptions and the 164 plates of hand-coloured illustrations remain invaluable, although they are rarely seen.
Pisces Conservation are delighted to release these volumes in electronic form, for Windows PCs and Macs, with fully searchable text and hyperlinks for ease of navigation
The quality of reproduction of illustrations and text is excellent.
The books are in Adobe Acrobat pdf format, allowing high-quality printing of the text and plates.
In addition, the plates are available separately on each CD as high-resolution images.
