His Imperial Majesty: A Natural History of the Purple Emperor [9781472950123]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The Purple Emperor is our most elusive and least-known butterfly. We glimpse it only through fissures in its tree top world, yet this giant insect has fascinated us for centuries.

This must be England's national butterfly. Matthew Oates has spent fifty years trying to unravel the Emperor's secrets.

Many mysteries remain unsolved, but enough are revealed in this book to enable experts and non-experts alike to go out in search of a butterfly that thrills and enthrals all who encounter it.

This is a good-news species, at a time of massive wildlife decline.

And this is a joyous - often rapturous - account, written in plain English, as a labour of love.

AUTHOR: Matthew Oates is a naturalist and author who has been pleasantly obsessed by butterflies since the age of ten. His experiences are summarised in his previous book, In Pursuit of Butterflies. He retired from his post as Specialist on Nature with the National Trust in April 2018, and has dedicated his retirement to ensuring the future of his favourite butterfly, the Purple Emperor. He writes regularly for The Times Nature Notebook column and in magazines, and lives on the Gloucestershire-Wiltshire border.
