This field book is part ot E. A. Schwarz's papers. Eugene Amandus Schwarz (1844-1928) was an important figure in American entomology, especially in the work of the United States National Museum and the United States Department of Agriculture. His papers concern the taxonomy and biology of insects, especially the Coleoptera, and include correspondence and diaries of Schwarz for trips to Florida (1876, 1919), Cuba (1903-1904), Texas and Arizona (1898 and 1901-1902), Guatemala (1906), Panama (1911); diaries and detailed letters listing itineraries of Shannon; biographical information on Hubbard and Schwarz; and notes and miscellaneous publications. The present item is a publication by Samuel Henshaw (1852-1941), who was a natural historian and entomologist. He was Secretary and Librarian of the Boston Society of Natural History from 1892 to 1901. He also succeeded Dr. H. A. Hagen at the Museum of Comparative Zoology as an assistant in entomology. His List of Coleoptera of America, North of Mexico, was published in 1885 in Philadelphia by the American Entomological Society. On the title page is pasted a printed inscription "With the compliments of Sam'l Henshaw, Boston Society of Natural History". Some notes with lists of insects (possibly by E. A. Shwarz) are inserted.
