NEW AND MUCH IMPROVED EDITION, WITH THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT ADDITIONS -the Modern Names, Generic and Specific Characters; Synonymes of later Naturalists; Accounts of the Economy, Habitations and Food of many of the Insects; and Scientific and Alphabetic Indexes; by J. O. Westwood, Esq., F.L.S., Secretary of the Entomological Society, &c. 3 vols. 4to. all the plates (engraved by Moses Harris) most correctly and beautifully coloured from the original specimens, (originally published at £15. 15s) hf. bd. morocco, uncut, £6. 16s 6d

As this splendid work has long been an established favourite, and is the only one of any extent published in this country on foreign entomology, the present improved edition, accommodated to the greatly advanced state of entomological science, and coloured in a very superior manner, cannot but be generally welcome. Those who have seen only the carelessly coloured copies which have occurred in the market of late years, can form no idea of the beauty of the present without inspection. It now challenges competition with the finest Entomological Works yet produced in this or any other country.

The merits of Drury's work are well known, and attested by a host of writers. The late President of the Linnæan Society, Sir James Ed. Smith, says of it, "The exquisite work of Drury displays the complete insect in a degree of perfection that leaves nothing to be desired;" Mr. Swainson in his Zoological Illustra tions, observes, "For the very accurate and excellent figures contained in Drury's Work, the scientific are indebted to Moses Harris, a most assiduous and observing entomologist, whose memory will be long cherished by our Aurelians;" and in the last edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica, the writer of the article on Entomology, declares that "Drury's Work has not been surpassed in beauty and accuracy of execution by any of the sumptuous efforts of the present day."

"The acknowledged value of the figures contained in Drury's Illustrations, and the extreme rarity of many of the Insects figured therein, will always render this work important to the entomologist. Drury's Collection was exceedingly choice and extensive, and occu pied nearly thirty years in its formation; all the specimens were in the highest state of preservation, and a very considerable number unique.

"Of the estimation in which the former edition of Drury's work was held by Linnæus, Fabricius, and others, the constant reference to it will sufficiently prove. The Rev. Wm. Kirby calls it opus entomologicus splendidissimus,' and the late Mr. Haworth describes it as a most beautiful and valuable work on entomology.""

This new edition is exquisitely coloured, and must rank high among the luxurious publications of the age. Its literary and scientific excellence is in keeping with its attractive appearance.

"We have always wondered that, in a country like this, where the pursuits of agriculture and horticulture are so universal and important, entomologists should never have bethought them of writing a book of this description. Some of the English followers of this branch of Natural History are of great eminence as systematists, but as to the manner of life of such creatures, the nature of their insidious attacks upon the property of man, or the means by which their ravages may be diminished or arrested, we have hitherto had no good modern information collected together under one head. It is therefore with great satisfaction that we announce the appearance of the present work. The principles of classifying insects, the nature of their transformations, their food, and similar topics, form a short introduction to the body of the work, in which the author treats of insects that attack man and domestic animals; of those which injure grain, pastures, and culinary vegetables; of the enemies of fruit trees, greenhouse and hothouse plants; and finally, of such as prey upon the trees of the forest."-Athenæum.

"Köllar's Treatise on Insects cannot fail to become a standard work; and we have no doubt that it will also become a popular one, as it is written in a clear and simple style, perfectly easy of comprehension, even to those before totally unacquainted with the subject. It is exceedingly well got up, and the engravings are very good; and we heartily recommend this treatise to the attention of every one who possesses a garden or other ground, as we are confident that no one taking an interest in rural affairs can read it without reaping both pleasure and profit from its perusal."— Literary Gazette.
