Excerpt from The Hunting Wasps

Henri Fabre's essays on Wasps will fill three volumes in all, of which this is the first. The others will be entitled The Mason-Wasps and More Hunting Wasps. The former will include the chapters on the Common or Social Wasp.

The first seventeen chapters of the present book appeared some years ago, wholly or in part, in a version of Vol. I of the Souvenirs Entomologiques prepared by the author of Mademoiselle Mori for Messrs. Macmillan & Co., by arrangement with whom i am now permitted to retranslate and republish them for the purpose of this collected and definite edition of Fabre's entomological works. Of the remainder, The Modern Theory of Instinct first saw the light in The English Review and An Unknown Sense, in an abbreviated form, in The Daily Mail.
