This is the 1898 edition the plates and the pages are in very very good condition. Sorry this statement is not true 'No rips in the book'. I took part of this text from my other listing and did not fully clean it. See below. These plates are amazing. Every insect has a number next to it. Then the tissue like paper that covers the plate has printed the number, the genus, species and sex of the butterfly. There are tons of illustrations. The book goes into incredible detail of the life cycle of the various families. It also has plates of the larva. It is very useful for caterpillar identification in North America. There are a total of 48 color plates.
There are a few ripped pages. Also the entire book has become detached from the binding. The plates are not ripped, however is some instance the tissue with the writing has some wrinkles from it being folded.
The book is worth either being repaired or having the plates framed.
