Notes:

Entomologia Terrae Novae was for many years a lost manuscript. Gosse’s son, the poet and literary critic Edmund Gosse, searched for it without success. It was finally located after Edmund’s death by his son Philip and donated to the Canadian Museum of Nature in the 1950s.

This is now recognized as the first attempt at classifying and illustrating the insect fauna of Newfoundland.

This is a small sketchbook of some 60 pages, and unfinished at that, where author painted in exquisite detail some 250 figures of Newfoundland insects, larvae and pupae, supplementing the art with the meticulous notes that he kept while collecting his specimens.
