Catherine Hamilton's Butterflies of New Zealand


Auckland: David Bateman, 1982 hardcover, 197mm x 260mm, 48pp. Colour and b/w photos, maps, appendices.

The word ‘butterfly’ conjures up images of calm sunny days, colourful gardens, gentle woodland glades, tussock-covered dunes by the sea and similar settings graced by this, one of the most beautiful creatures on earth.

Catherine Hamilton set out to portray in watercolours the delicate butterfly world. Her style, a blending of simplicity and realism, is marvellously suited to the task and has resulted in a subtle and very lovely record of all the butterflies that may be seen in New Zealand. Twenty-three species and two subspecies are known here; in this book all are illustrated, the majority in colour in their natural surroundings.

The artist has also written a brief commentary consisting of basic facts and intriguing information about the butterfly; the book concludes with a short summary of the butterfly’s life cycle.

Very good condition.
