Excerpt from Illustrations of British Entomology; Or a Synopsis of Indigenous Insects: Containing Their Generic and Specific Distinctions

A cycle of nineteen years has been completed, since the appearance of the first number of these Illustrations; within which period no less than 72 distinct works on Entomology, forming 112 volumes, have emanated from the British press (exclusive of reprints, and of works on Bees). Of these more than half (41) are arranged in conformity with the views developed in this work, or my Systematic Catalogue; - the remainder being chiefly devoted to the description of foreign Insects, to particular groups of Insects, or being elementary treatises on the subject.

From these facts, and from what is shewn in the note below, and hereafter stated, it would appear that my labours have contributed materially towards the advancement of Entomology in this country.

That the exertions of Dr. Leach, and of Messrs. Kirby and Spence, however, greatly conduced towards instilling a taste for this department of Zoology, and its consequent progression, need scarcely be insisted upon in this place; but the foundations of a building are of little avail, unless the building itself be erected: - it has been my endeavour to attempt the stupendous enterprize, so far as relates to the indigenous species of insects; but, alas! vainly. Nevertheless, I have succeeded in partially rearing the temple, and my success may be rendered manifest by the following brief recapitulation of my labours.
