Excerpt from Illustrations of New Species of Exotic Butterflies, Vol. 1: Selected Chiefly From the Collections of W. Wilson Saunders and William C. Hewitson
Although the first volume of the Exotic Butterﬂies, which is now brought to a close, has not succeeded in a pecuniary point of View, we do not hesitate to proceed with a second - having abundant materials with which to fill its pages - willing to consider any loss which we may sustain as a slight contribution towards the advance ment of our favourite science, and unwilling that the many beautiful things which have delighted our own eyes should not also be enjoyed by our brother naturalists.
