Book Synopsis

cience for the general public. According to the Preface: "The object of this little book is to give in as simple a form as possible a short account of some of the British Wild Bees, Wasps, Ants, etc., scientifically known as the Hymenoptera Aculeata. Of these the non-scientific public rarely recognizes more than the Hive Bee, the Humble Bee, the Wasp, and the Hornet, whereas there are about 400 different kinds to be found in this country, and they can be recognized by any one who is disposed to make a special study of the group." According to Wikipedia: "Edward Saunders (1848 Wandsworth- 1910) was an English entomologist who specialised in Coleoptera and Hemiptera and Hymenoptera. He was a businessman associated with Lloyds Bank studying entomology in his spare time. His Catalogus Buprestidarum of 1871 was 'a work whose importance was immediately recognised, and which has ever since remained a classic. In order to render the synonymies ... as reliable as possible, he undertook the only foreign tour of his life, visiting in succession all the chief museums of Europe and examining personally the types'.
