Library stamps. Volume one with ex libris.Sir George Francis Hampson, 10th Baronet (1860-1936) was an English entomologist. Hampson travelled to India to become a tea-planter in the Nilgiri Hills of the Madras presidency (now Tamil Nadu), where he became interested in moths and butterflies. When he returned to England he worked at the Natural History Museum (London), where he wrote ââThe Lepidoptera of the Nilgiri Districtââ (1891) and several other works. He was promoted to acting assistant keeper in 1901. He then worked on his magnum opus, his 15 volume ââCatalogue of the Lepidoptera Phalaenae in the British Museumââ. Complete text (volume 1 same binding but from another set) together with all plate volumes except those to volume 1 and volume 1 supplement. The text volumes of this work are not rare, although complete copies are seldom offered. However the beautifully chromolithographed plate volumes are far more difficult to obtain.‎
