This issue's cover illustration is the frontispiece to a classic work of eighteenth-century entomology, Moses Harris' The Aurelian, which began to appear in parts in 1758 and was published entire in 1766 (Lisney, 1960). Harris, who was the illustrator as well as the author, pictures the contemporary entomologist with part of his array of collecting equipment. (By tradition, the frontispiece is supposed to be a self-portrait.)
