Well organized and beautifully illustrated--I prefer the hand-drawn butterflies to pinned dead ones any day!--this is a lovely world-wide guide. The species and subspecies comparisons were very interesting.

Mine isn't really the Sally Morgan book. I got mine at Salvation Army for $1.50 and the best thing is that it was printed in 1977 in Prague. There are other good things too - the author refuses to give instructions on identification by wing veins because to get to them you'd have to destroy the butterfly. The photographs, even the color ones, have a washed out feeling, which is atmospheric.
