About this Item

Octavo; pp. 56; Frontispiece and drawings; original printed blue string tied paper wrappers; From The Illustrated Annual Register Of Rural Affairs. Dr. Asa Fitch (1809-1879) was a natural historian and entomologist. His early studies were of both natural history and medicine, which he studied at the newly formed Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In 1854 he became the first professional entomologist of New York State Agricultural Society (commissioned by the State of New York). This made him the first occupational entomologist in the United States. His vast studies of many insects helped scientists to solve some of the problems of crop damage caused by insects. Many of his notebooks are now the property of the Smithsonian Institution. Fitch also discovered the Rodent Botfly Cuterebra emasculator in 1856. Bookseller Inventory # 13028
