Francis O. Morris’s ‘Natural History of British Moths’ is one of the best and most thorough 19th-century accounts of lepidopterology. Not only does this work describe hundreds of various species of moths, it also features over 2000 individual illustrated figures.

 

Morris, who also studied butterflies and birds, notably rejected the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin and strongly disliked Thomas Huxley’s scientific studies. In fact, Morris published anti-Darwin pamphlets detailing the flaws of natural selection; however, he did advocate for the possible ‘resurrection or restoration of animals’ because, as he claimed, the Bible did not refute the idea of animal immortality.
