Butterfly books for Europe and Asia

Can someone please recommend any butterfly books for Europe and Asia? Must include Middle east, Central Asia and South Asia if the latter is possible.

There's this but not sure of full range covered.

The Middle East isn't covered well really.

If you can find it, this covers all Europe and the Middle East.

I thought there'd been a newer version, I wrote to him to ask why Western Russia was not included or am I mis-remembering?

Edit: I found the old thread relating to this book, seems to not be a traditional field guide in the opinion of some?

I also had the idea there is a newer version, but didn't bother doing a search :)
