Abstract

IN commencing a notice of this work it is impossible to avoid an expression of admiration for the persistent energy displayed by its septuagenarian author. Half a century has elapsed since his “inaugural dissertation” (on an entomological subject) was read at Halle, and during this time a continuous flow of valuable works and articles has appeared from his pen, not only in the long period of his professorship at Halle but also since he became permanently located in Buenos Ayres. Now, at an age when most men who have attained it have lapsed into “the sere and yellow leaf,” so far as laborious work is concerned, we find him undertaking a gigantic enterprise, of which entomology is only a portion. All those who have had occasion to consult his former works will heartily acquiesce in the hope that he may live to complete this.
