Elements of Entomology
Excerpt from Elements of Entomology: Prepared for the Use of Schools and Colleges The sixth in the series of "First Books of Natural History," includes a consideration of Articulated Animals, Insects, My'riapods, Arach'nidans, Crusta'ceans, Cirr'hopods, Anne'lidans, and Zo'ophytes, or radiated animals. The volume is illustrated by ninety-one beautiful wood-cuts, executed in his best style, by Mr. G. Thomas, of Philadelphia. The etymology of technical words is explained in the text; and a full Glossary is also appended. In the preparation of this volume, besides the text of Edwards and Comte, the works of Cuvier, Lamarck, T. Rymer Jones, Thomas Say, and others, have been freely used. The writer takes great pleasure in believing that in supplying a series of elementary books on natural history, his humble labours may be beneficial to the country. As a useful branch of education, natural history seems not to be sufficiently appreciated, or vxtensively regarded.
