Book Review

Abstract

Excerpt: According to the British Museum Catalogue, this curious and interesting little work was first printed in 1885. F. S. Bodenheimer devotes several pages to it in his Insects as Human Food, and notes that the "booklet has now [1951] almost disappeared. In London it was apparently only available at the British Museum, where it was destroyed by bombing. The only copy to be found by the author was in the University Library at Oxford . . . "I have located no copies in the United States except the one at the USDA Library. Due to its extreme rarity, and its timeliness now that our population explosion and dwindling resources have given us a rather unpalatable source of 'food for thought', Why Not Ear Insects? is well worth reprinting, and E. W. Classey has performed the service.
