This book is a delight, a gentle, witty and erudite exploration of lepidoptera.” John Wright, Country Life

 

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.

  • About Little Toller Books

    Toller n river valley in West Dorset. Recorded in the Domesday
    survey as Tolre, derived from a Celtic word for stream in a hollow valley.

    Little Toller Books was born in 2008 as an imprint of the Dovecote Press, a family-run publishing company that has specialised in books about rural life and local history since 1974. Little Toller was started with a singular purpose: to revive forgotten and classic books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.

    The success of Little Toller’s Nature Classics has enabled it to grow into an independent publisher, attuned to writers and artists who seek inventive ways to reconnect us with the natural world and to celebrate the places we live in.
