Thanks to Jeff for pointing to this link, which provides access to the entire work...unlike the incomplete coverage available at the Google Books link I had originally posted here.

If every family of Insecta had a treatment of such high scholarly caliber; such rich detail; and as well-written and illustrated as this...well, I guess a lot of entomophiles would think they had been transported to heaven :-)
