Book Review


Excerpt: We have never before reviewed a calendar, but this lovely production of the Curwen Press should be of interest to many entomologist. Each month's page features a finely executed color plate from an eighteenth-century rarity, James Dutfield's A New and Complete Natural History of English Moths and Butterflies (London, 1748-9). Thirteen Lepidoptera are illustrated with their immature stages, foodplants, and in a few cases, ichneumons that parasitize them. Descriptions of the insects are taken from Dutfield's work, and a modern commentary on each species is included.
