Book Description

xii, 312 pp., , Small-8vo, orig. blue cloth, printed title label to spine, rubbed. Occasional minor foxing. Good. From the library of Keith Hyatt (d. 2021), acarologist at the Natural History Museum, London, and prominent member of the London Natural History Society, with his signature to pastedown. With an introduction by H.G. Wells. Fifth impression (first published 1919). Wilhelm Nero Pilate Barbellion was the pseudonym of Bruce Frederick Cummings (1889-1919). Cummings was a naturalist who worked at the British Museum (Natural History). One of the last entries in his journal reads, "I am only twenty-eight, but I have telescoped into those few years a tolerably long life: I have loved and married, and have a family; I have wept and enjoyed, struggled and overcome, and when the hour comes I shall be content to die." He died of multiple sclerosis shortly after this book was first published. This work is regarded as a minor classic of English literature. [44726]
