Excerpt from Forest Entomology
As author of a work on a subject which does not appeal to a very wide circle of readers, I realise that it is a very high compliment that a second edition has been called for in a comparatively short time. Hence there is no need for drastic changes. I have, however, tried to benefit by the kindly advice given by entomological friends and others interested in the subject; therefore the chapters have been re-arranged more in accordance with the sequence of entomological classification. I have tried also, as far as I possibly can, to correct the recognition of photos and drawings of several friends. In this respect the first edition showed a slight error in acknowledging special photos as emanating from a friend rather than the firm of which he was a partner, and to whom I am very grateful for assistance.
I am specially indebted to Professor Carpenter, of the Royal College of Science, Dublin, for correcting several points in the Introductory chapter.
