Fabre, J. Henri - The Life of the Grasshopper: The Works of J. H. Fabre. Translated by Alexander Teixeira De Mattos. Hodder and Stoughton, not dated, copyright 1917. I have ventured in the present volume to gather together, under the somewhat loose and inaccurate title of The life of the Grasshopper, the essays scattered over the Souvenirs Entomologiques that treat of Grasshoppers, Crickets, Locusts and such insects as the Cicada, or Gigale, the Mantis and the Cuckoo-spit, or, to adopt the author's happier and more euphonious term, the Foamy Cicadella. They exhaust the number of the orthopterous and homopterous insects discussed by Henri Fabre. ... (Translator's Note). 7¾" x 5¼", 308pp, green buckram with gold blocking, hardback. Index. Spine sunned; slight edge-wear; slight water mark round top-front corner/edges of back-free endpaper; corners rounded; bookplate on front paste-dwon; good; no wrapper.
