The images are properly complemented by Latin descriptions in text. Excellent description and illustration of insects in the collection of the Museum Histoire naturelle in Paris. .Complete copies of this important entomological study of insects in the Museum of Natural History in Paris are of greatest rarity as the publisher's stock was destroyed by fire. This is one of a few copies that were issued with colored plates. The insects were drawn by Antoine Jean Coquebert who was a noted French naturalist and councilor to the royal court at Amiens and Rheims. This is an exceptionally fine hand colored copy of a very scarce work. (Nissen ZBI 957). Bookseller Inventory # 0000270
