Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ... a southern insect and no doubt rarely occurs in this province. Papilio brevicauda, Saunders. At present We have no local record of the capture of this species, but Rev. C. J. S.
