Porritt's Lists Porritt's Lists

George Porritt (1848-1927) was Yorkshire's first YNU County Lepidoptera Recorder and the first-ever person to collect the county's butterfly and moth records together systematically. Through a journal called Entomological Transactions of the YNU he published his first Lists in parts between 1883 and 1886. Then in 1904 he produced a Supplement followed by a slightly updated summary in the Victoria County History in 1907. Finally a little known Hull Area List published in 1922 was discovered. His Lists cover records from the late 1700s to the early 1900s This book makes all these lists readily available
