This 368 page beauty is presented in the publisher's original and mgnificent decorative binding. Another of French historian Michelet's commentaries - his other is 'The Bird' - where the subject of natural history is treated not from the point of view of mere science, nor from that of sentiment, but from that of the author's fervent democratic belief that the universe, or nature, is identical with divinity.

The Insect by Jules Michelet
