by John B. Smith - Brooklyn Entomological Society
The book is of exceptional historical interest in the insights it gives into development of early modern entomological science. It also is of practical value as a source for terms that are obscure to modern users because they are no longer current.
The book provides an overview of insects, mites and ticks that directly cause diseases of humans and domestic animals, and that transmit microbes causing disease. It is aimed at students and practitioners in medical and veterinary health services.
