Illustrations of New Species of Exotic Butterflies, Vol. 5 free pdf Excerpt from Illustrations of New Species of Exotic Butterflies, Vol. 5 It is with regret, not however unmixed with satisfaction, that I come to the close of a work which has been to me a twenty-five years' labour of love. With regret that age and failing health forbid me to commence another volume. With satisfaction when I remember the great kindness which I have experienced personally from a lepidopterists during its progress, and the very favourable reception it has met with from all, and especially from those whose position as naturalists gives value to their opinions. I have many times during the progress of the book expressed my gratitude for the kindness and liberality which I have met with from Dr. Boisduval, not only in giving me free access to his collections, but in allowing me during his absence to select from them and bring home with me a that I wished to figure, feeling, as I do, the difficulty I should myself experience in being parted from any of my treasures. To the generous encouragement met with from Mr. Wilson Saunders, especially at its commencement, the work owes much of its success. I am fully aware of and regret many errors, but have endeavoured to atone for them as much as possible by myself pointing them out and correcting them. It has always been my study to make the work useful rather than attractive. If I have succeeded in both, my utmost wishes have been attained. As one instance of the great additions which have been made to the diurnal Lepidoptera, during its progress nearly two hundred species have been added to the genus Ithomia on its plates. I have always seen the necessity, if my work is to be of any use to entomology, of illustrating by figures all the species I have myself described, seeing that descriptions - not of the old authors only, but of those of more recent date - of Godart and others, especially when they refer to nearly allied species such as Thecla - are not of the slightest use. I am sorry to say that several species of my describing are not yet figured, and that I now find it desirable to describe others which remain unnamed in my collection, but all these, and they are chiefly obscure Hesperidae, I hope to figure as my last contribution to the science which I have so much loved.
