Rare first edition. Maximilian Spinola (1780-1857) was an Italian entomologist whose entomological contributions were mainly in the orders of Coleoptera, Hymenoptera and Hemiptera. He was from a noble family and a descendant of the famous Spanish General Ambrogio Spinola, marqués de los Balbases. Many of the insects described came from his properties in Spain and South America. All Spinola's publications are rare. Some faint dampstaining at the beginning of book.
