George Vernon Hudson.

Addional Notes:


New Zealand is fortunate in having had one of the world's truly great entomologists in George Vernon Hudson who migrated with his family to New Zealand in 1881. At a very young age he began to draw and to paint the insects he saw and these meticulously executed miniature paintings enhanced all the books he published. In 1897 Hudson completed the first edition of New Zealand Moths and Butterflies which the following year was published in a handsome quarto volume in London. He dedicated all his books to “youthful entomologists and collectors”.
