“Fabre’s Book of Insects” contains a great French entomologist’s charming essays about insects in real life, mythology and folklore. The book is a retelling of Alexander Teixeira de Mattos’ translation of Jean-Henri Fabre’s “Souvenirs Entomologiques.” The essays were reworked by Mrs. Rodolph Stawell and illustrated with 12 full-color plates by Edward J. Detmold.
