Excerpt from The Moth Book: A Popular Guide, to a Knowledge of the Moths of North America
Brevity is the soul of wit, and this fact has not been forgotten by the writer in preparing the pages of this book. The limitations necessarily imposed by the space available precluded the preparation of lengthy descriptions. This brevity in descrip tion is, however, as the writer believes, abundantly compensated for by the illustrations in the Plates. One good recognizable ngure of a species is worth reams of mere verbal description. Those who desire to go deeply into the subject, and who wish to familiarize themselves with all its technicalities, will find in the list of works named in that part of the introduction devoted to the bibliography of the subject much that they desire.
