Studies of the silk worm and other insects

Entomological studies of various insects including stages in their life-cycle. Figure 1 Eggs, silk bag, grubs, chrysalis and moths of the silk worm Bombyx mori. Figure 2 Caterpillar, pupa and butterfly, probably the small tortoiseshell Aglais urticae "feeding upon the Nettle". Figure 3 "The Death-watch...from the Reverend Mr. Derham" actual size and magnified. Figure 4 chrysalis, nymph and adult of "the Lady Cow", the two-spot ladybird Adalia bipunctata. Figure 5 "A Prega Deos, from the East Indies", a praying mantis. Figure 6 "An Insect, from Amboina...taken from the Cabinet of Dr. Ruysch at Amsterdam", apparently a leaf insect from Ambon in the Moluka Islands, Indonesia. Plate 27 from the book A philosophical account of the works of nature, by Richard Bradley (London, 1721). Inscribed "Plate XXVII. T.Cole sculp." Richard Bradley (1688-1732) English botanist and writer, was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1712.

Original: copperplate engraving. 1721
