A nice clean first edition

No one who has read with interest the author’s former well-known contributions to the “Wayside and Woodland” series could fail to welcome this, his last addition. The book is not claimed to be a rigid textbook on the Hymenoptera but sets out to give a
general idea of these insects to field-naturalists. Therefore the treatment has necessitated the consideration of insects with no special regard to the natural sequence of groups, and only the more noticeable or important insects are fully described. A classified index of families and genera of the Hymenoptera is, however, appended. There are, also, a glossary of technical terms and a good general index. Step’s books always have made good, interesting reading, but this, especially from the point of view of the profuse illustrations, can be looked upon as his magnum opus.
