His Imperial Majesty: A Natural History of the Purple Emperor

His Imperial Majesty: A Natural History of the Purple Emperor

Matthew Oates

Available from 10 June 2021. 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 His Imperial Majesty 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. 296 pages.
