Second edition. The first was published in 1804. Rare work on Hymenoptera. Fabricius was one of themost famous pupils of Linnaeus, with whom he formed a lifelong friendship. He greatly increased the knowledge of entomology and gained a wide reputation abroad. He was primarily a systematist and originated the maxillary and cibarian system of classification of insects in which mouth parts were used to separate the order. In his works Fabricius described many Australian and New Zealand insects brought back by Captain Cook's around -the-world voyages. Provenance: Armorial bookplate A. Mercer 'L'espérance me comfort'.
