Overview

 The Royal Entomological Society was founded in 1833 and is one of the oldest such societies in the world. Its records are an invaluable source for historians of entomology and the natural sciences both in Great Britain and overseas. This guide is principally a catalogue of the records of the society from the time of its foundation, but also covers the records of some earlier societies and collections of papers by individual entomologists. The book is introduced with essays by Brian Gardner on the history of the Royal Entomological Society and on the development of British entomology, and by Simon Fenwick on the archives and their potential for historians.

Author Biography: Simon Fenwick, Archivist to the Royal Watercolour Society, UK Brian Gardiner, and Berit Pedersen, Librarian, The Royal Entomological Society, London, UK.
