“The Macmillan Company announces for early publication a book with the name Life Histories of American Insects. There is no book precisely like this in the field and the author of this one is exceptionally well qualified by previous experience both as an observer and as an author. The work is by Clarence M. Weed, Professor of Zoology and Entomology in the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, Entomologist of the New Hampshire Experiment Station, and Associate Editor of the American Naturalist. Earlier books by the same author are Ten New England Blossoms, Insect Life, published by the government, and some valuable works on the practical side of the study of insects, published by the Orange Judd Company. Entomologists, scientific students and especially the teachers of nature study in our school will welcome this book which should be in every school and public library, for, until its appearance, they have only had a few books of the popular class which could be relied on for scientific value, and these chiefly of English publication, descriptive of English insects.”
