First edition. Although not presented as such, this masterly guise to the centipede is accepted as a volume in the Wayside and Woodland series. Scarce: 'Probably fewer copies were printed than any other title in the series. The book is still the standard work on British centipedes and their relatives, and is in demand' (Marren).
