The 'British Insects' suite of interactive descriptions at 
http://delta-intkey.com/britin/index.htm now carries scans of the 769 
folios (plates and text) from John Curtis's classic 'British Entomology' 
(1824-1840), along with attempts to assign modern names to all the 
beautifully depicted insects and plants. Authoritative corrections to 
identifications would be welcomed and suitably acknowledged.

The complete suite of packages can be used interactively over the 
Internet, or downloaded free of charge, and high resolution versions of 
the illustrations are available on request for worthwhile applications.
