An attractively bound copy. Fabricius was one of the most famous pupils of Linnaeus. He greatly increased the knowledge of entomology and gained a wide reputation abroad. 'In accordance with his new fundamental characters he changed the Linnaean names into... Rhyngota (Hemiptera)...' (Smith, History of Entomology p. 111). The separately published index is rare and lacking in most copies. In his works Fabricius described many Australian and New Zealand insects brought back by Captain Cook's around -the-world voyages.
