About this Item

First edition: Vol. V of a five-volume series, this volume is dedicated to zoology and botany. Ferdinand Vandeveer Hayden, remembered today as one of the primary proponents of the creation of Yellowstone National Park, was a surgeon and geologist who led the massive United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories from 1867 through 1879, and edited the resulting publications. The present portion of that enormous undertaking consists of "A Synopsis of the Acrididae of North America," written by pioneering American entomologist Cyrus Thomas. Thomas's monograph describes earwigs, cockroaches, devils-horses, walking-sticks, grasshoppers (this category including locusts), and crickets, and is illustrated with a few in-text wood engravings in addition to the lithographed plate (done by W.H. Holmes) showing 17 different U.S. insects. => This copy is uncut and unopened. Folio (31.5 cm, 12.4"). x, 24, 262 pp.; 1 plt.
