The first edition of The Butterflies of the Malay Peninsula was written by A. S. Corbet & H. M. Pendlebury (1934) dealt only with the more common Malayan butterflies. The second edition (1956) was rewritten by Dr. Corbet and included every Malayan butterfly known at the time. The third edition, published by the Malaysian Nature Society in 1978, was revised by J. N. Eliot based on taxonomic work done in the years following Corbet’s death. He also revised the fourth edition (1992) which included all-new colour plates.
