Amédée Louis Michel Lepeletier de Saint Fargeau (1770-1845) was a French entomologist. From the year 1833 until his death, he served as president of the Société Entomologique de France. Most of the excellent plates were drawn by Prêtre and have delicate colouring. The work was issued with plain or coloured plates. The present copy is the rare coloured issue. The work was published as part of the series 'Suites à Buffon' by the publisher Roret. The final volume was editied by Aug. Brullé. "... mais son oeuvre essentielle est 'l 'Histoire Naturelle des Insectes Hyménoptères', incluse dans les 'Suites à Buffon'. Cet ouvrage commencé en 1836, restera inachevé et c'est Brullé qui assurera la complète rédaction. Cette Histoire compte 4 volumes totalisant 2500 pages accompagnées de 48 planches... Pour la première fois, il est offert aux spécialistes une étude générale des Hyménoptères, étude qui garde jusqu'à nos jours, valeur de référence" (Lhoste pp. 133-4). Nissen ZBI, 2452.
