Description:

Scarce. Thomas de Grey, 6th Baron Walsingham (1843-1919), lived at Merton Hall, Norfolk, where he complied a vast and important collection of microlepidoptera, which was bequeathed to the British Museum (Natural History). John Hartley Durrant (1863- 1928) was Lord Walsingham's secretary and curator of his collections. Durrant became an authority on zoological nomenclature.

The introduction states 'The following Rules are at present in force for regulating all work done in the study of microlepidoptera at Merton. They may be called the ‘Merton Rules’ for convenience of reference. The object in these rules is to ensure absolute obedience to the Law of Priority’. This work was an important contribution to the later development of an international code for zoological nomenclature.
