Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1892. Hardcover. Very Good -. Item #37263
Two tone green cloth with gilt titles and decorations on spine and front cover, top-edge gilt, illustrated with 32 color chromolithographic plates of flies, six engravings of natural insects, and eight reproductions of photographs. The 1892 date does not appear on the title page, making this an early printing. Mottling to front and rear boards, light rubbing to edges, corners and ends of spine. Front and rear hinge cracking, and the first few pages are loose, including the title page, although overall binding remains tight.
