Excerpt from The Entomologist's Monthly Magazine, Vol. 25 Vol. Xxv has extended to a somewhat inconvenient bulk, necessitated by the resolve to commence each Vol. Of the Second Series in January, and to end it in December. This has been repeatedly urged upon us. The two Editors who took part at the inauguration of the Magazine in 1864, and who still remain on the staff, have reason to regret the result of their endeavours to further, through its pages, the cause of Entomology during the period that has since elapsed. Those of the Editors who have joined 'at subsequent periods share this feeling. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
