The Story of the Most Diverse and Myriad Animals on Earth
by Michael S. Engel
2018, 232 pages, all color. To date, we have discovered, and described or named around 1.1 million insect species, and thousands of new species are being added to the ranks every year. It is estimated that there are around five million insect species on Earth, making them the most diverse lineage of all life by far. This book gives readers a fascinating look at the world’s most numerous inhabitants, illustrated with stunning images from the American Museum of Natural History’s Rare Book Collection. It provides a unique glimpse into an amazing collection of over 14,000 volumes not usually available to the general public.

This magnificent volume tells and illustrates the frequently incredible story of insects. Noted entomologist Michael S. Engel explores insects’ evolution and diversity; metamorphosis; pests, parasites, and plagues; society and language; camouflage; and pollination—as well as tales of discovery by intrepid entomologists. The book features more than 180 illustrations from the Museum’s Rare Book Collection. They reveal the extraordinary world of insects down to the smallest, most astonishing details, from butterflies’ iridescent wings to beetles’ vibrant colors. The high quality of the illustrations on the printed page is far better than what you may find on web searches.

We highly recommend adding this book to your collection. It will be a great gift for anyone with an interest in the natural world, art, history, or rare books. And - it is very reasonably priced. Hardcover; 9 x 10".
