Description:

Text French. The French zoologist André Marie Constant Duméril (1774-1860) was professor of anatomy at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris and later became professor of herpetology and ichthyology. He published a number of important zoological works including: 'Zoologie analytique' (1806), and the monumental nine volume work 'l’Erpétologie générale ou Histoire naturelle complète des reptiles' (1834-1854). This work, 'Entomologie analytique', illustrated with many attractive wood engravings of insect specimens throughout the text, was his main entomolical work. The first volume provides a general introduction to insects and the Coleoptera. The second includes the Orthoptera, Neuroptera, Hymenoptera, Hemiptera, Lepidoptera, Diptera and other insect orders.

Published in the 'Mémoires de l'Academie des Sciences de l'Institute Imperial de France' Tome XXXI.
