Insects in the Royal Society's Repository


Studies of a 'Fly Nest'; a 'Wild Bee'; a Lanthorne Flie' ('Lanthorn-Fly, of Peru ... two or three of these fasten'd to a stick ... will give sufficient light to those that travail or walk in the Night'); a 'Nocoonaca' ('may be called The Great West-Indian Goat-Chafer'); the 'Lesser Bull Chafer'; a 'Great Gogle Ey'd Beetle' ('Carabus Indiae Orientalis maximus'); a 'Long Gogle Ey'd Beetle of the East-Indies'; and a 'Thick Gogle Ey'd Beetle of the East-Indies' ('Carabus Orientalis crassus'). Table 13 from the book Musaeum Regalis Societatis; or, A catalogue and description of the natural and artificial rarities belonging to the Royal Society, and preserved at Gresham Colledge, by Nehemiah Grew (London, 1681). The Royal Society's museum collection, or Repository, was established in the 1660s. It was intended to be "a General Collection of all the Effects of Arts, and the Common, or Monstrous Works of Nature", for use by the Fellows in their attempts to understand and classify the natural world.

Original: engraving. 1681
