Larvae of Insects
By Alvah Peterson
Edwards Brothers, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1948
Two Volume Set
Part I is subtitled "Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera"
Part II is subtitled "Coleoptera, Diptera, Neuroptera, Siphonaptera, Mecoptera, Trichoptera".

The publication year refers to the first edition. These volumes are primarily an identification guide with keys, drawings, descriptions, and bibliographies. Part I, though, contains some brief introductory material on equipment and methods for collecting, killing, dissecting, and preserving insect larvae that I found interesting.

Life of North American Insects
By Benedict Jaeger
Harper, 1859
An interesting illustrated historical work available from the Biodiversity Heritage Library. The author, Benedict Jaeger (1789-1869)*, is rather obscure. Quoting from a work about him (Weiss, Harry; 1922. Professor Benedict Jaeger, early entomologist of New Jersey--amazon.com link, archive.org full text):

Prof. Jaeger (1789-1869) travelled widely and authored many books on insects, notably "The Life of North American Insects" (1854). In 1831 he was engaged by the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University, to put their Zoological Museum in order, after which he accepted a teaching post which he resigned in 1840. (NJHS 1922)
