The Macrolepidoptera of the World free pdf Excerpt from The Macrolepidoptera of the World: A Systematic Description of the Hitherto Known Macrolepidoptera When in 1909 the last number of Volume I of the "Macrolepidoptera of the World" had appeared some critics expressed a doubt as to whether an undertaking of such magnitude could be carried out oil the scale of the first volume. The friendly, even enthusiastic, reception accorded to Volume I has decided the fate of the entire work. From that moment there was nothing to hinder a rapid publication, and both editor and publisher have strenuously endeavoured to carry out the plans set forth in the preface to Volume 1. As the principal item in our programme was comprehensiveness, we have attempted, as far as the limited space would allow, at least to indicate all that is of value in determining and classifying the species, as well as to mention biological details. Frequently also remarks have been added which have reference to the relation of the Lepidoptera to the environment, food, protective measures, injuriousness, etc. Although the size of the present volume has hereby been increased, the volume containing 100 pages more than its predecessor, the number of parts has nevertheless been restricted to thirty, as some of the parts consist of several sheets of text. It has thus been possible to conform to the wishes of collectors desiring a comprehensive work on the hybrids of Sphingidae from the pen of the most, experienced writer on this subject. The second point mentioned in the introduction to Volume 1 was rapidity of publication. The financial question for the entire work having been solved by the reception accorded to Volume I, it was possible to publish as rapidly as time would allow. Although I do not anticipate that there is anybody who docs not appreciate such a performance, I hope nevertheless that readers will remember the rapidity with which the work was issued if any slight errors of omission and commission have escaped our vigilance. We have been blamed by some reviewers of our work for not going beyond our original intention of providing a comprehensive handbook for collectors and Lepidopterists by examining the collections of Museums and private Entomologists for new species and by continuing the subdividing of forms and the naming of aberrations already more than sufficiently carried out by others. We accept this reproof with the reservation that we did not follow this course on account of expediency, but because we assumed that the majority of readers would not be pleased at the introduction of numerous new forms and the minute subdivision of old ones. I cannot leave this subject without attempting to explain why another wish, which was more generally expressed, had to he ignored. Since the conclusion of Volume I nearly 150 weeks ago (Nov. 1909) almost exactly 150 parts have been issued in each language- in the German edition, for instance, parts 56 to 102 of Division I and 41 to 143 of Division II, i. e. one part in each language every week. Why, we are asked, is not a German part issued regularly every Monday, a French one every Wednesday, and an English one every Friday, and why are periods of extreme haste followed by pauses of weeks or even months ?
