These volumes contain the best account of I nsects, and their habits, that has hitherto been given. It is presented in the most interesting form, and from undoubted authority. It is indeed a matter of surprise, that this portion of animated creation, which is so often the occasion of enormous injuries to man, and at the same time administers both direct and indirect benefits to the human family, should have received so little of our attention. Without a knowledge of their habits, the labours of the farmer, and of the horticulturist are frequently vain; and in much of the ordinary business of life, even in Domestic Economy, some attention to this subject is indispensable. Beside the utility of this knowledge, the reader of these volumes will find an abundant compensation for his labour, in the interesting descriptions and details with which they abound. January.
