First paragraph of Preface:

"A revision of Jose Rollin de la Torre-Bueno's A Glossary of Entomology, published in 1937, was long overdue. For over half a century the Glossary, itself an expanded and modified version of John B. Smith's An Explanation of Terms Used in Entomology, published in 1906, has served as the most important reference for entomological terms in the English language. Supplement A by George S. Tulloch, published in 1962, enhanced the value of the Glossary, but even it is long out of date."

Agricultural insect pests of temperate regions and their control
By Hill D.S.
Cambridge Univ Press. 659 pp., 1987
has a cozy feel of a poetry anthology; reasonably informative.
a funny detail: the two world maps on p.23 showing “General geographical/biological subdivisions” and “Zoogeographical regions,” respectively, are provided in two different projections (Mercator and Miller, it seems)... what were they thinking?
