Decorative preliminary pages, half-title, dedication page, title page, pp (6), 96, well illustrated, tall quarto, four genealogical charts (of which three are large and folding), lower corner of pages very slightly bumped, paperback, covers very slightly worn, very slightly curled. With a presentation inscription from the author to the botanist and bibliophile Michael Walpole. Obviously a very limited printing, but I have been unable to discover an actual number. RARE. [Anthony Crawforth, in his 2018 book on Bates - The Butterfly Hunter - writes : "It is a very important source of information and includes copious details from family sources. Lee is the most important source of information for Bates's early days, providing a comprehensive background to the family and their circumstances, with the all-important family trees clearly described. It is also a source of interesting photographs,"]
