BEIRNE, Bryan P. British Pyralid and Plume Moths. Frederick Warne & Co. 1954
8vo. Publisher's blue gilt cloth, gilt spine, rounded corners, illustrated endpapers, with dustwrapper; pp. 208, 405 figures including 216 in colour; a little chipping to top of price-clipped dustwrapper, otherwise near fine.
Second edition, preferred to the first for its improved illustrations. "There had been no illustrated account of the moths since the nineteenth century…it is now scarce…still the only accessible guide to the British Plume Moths" (Peter Marren, The Observer's Book of Wayside and Woodland, 2003).
