Item Description: Kota Kinabalu, 2005. 15 plain photographic plates, pp viii, 182, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [A welcome reprint of the very scarce 1951 original. Gilbert Arrow (1873-1948) published over 100 papers on Scarabaeoids during his career. He is probably best known for his four-volume work on Lamellicorns in the Fauna of British India series and this synoptic book on Horned Beetles. Although trained as an architect, he gave this up after five years to obtain a position on the staff of the Department of Zoology of the British Museum of Natural History in London in 1896. From this time on until his death, he devoted himself to the study of beetles, especially scarabs. He retired in 1938 at the mandatory age of 65, but continued to do volunteer work in the museum until a few weeks before his death. His work for the museum, especially during the war years, was invaluable, and he was considered imperturbable, even when badly cut by flying glass after a flying bomb fell outside the museum. His very broad range of scarab papers was foundational for many of today’s studies.]. Bookseller Inventory # 003685

Item Description: 2005. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. This study of Horned Beetles is by Gilbert Arrow (1873-1948). He was a notable English coleopterologist and this book, originally published in 1951, was his last work. Varieties of Horned Beetles are found in many places including Borneo and their "strangeness" has always created human interest. The beetles' habits and the differences in horn structure and usage are discussed in detail and related with the ideas and discoveries of other biologists including Wallace and Darwin. With original black and white photographs and a new bibliography, authors' and subject indexes. 183 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 038244
