This is an annotated and illustrated edition of Vincent Holt’s Why Not Eat Insects?, first published in 1885. It also contains a contemporary review of the book from an American newspaper and the Executive Summary of the 2013 UN (FAO) Report on Edible Insects. The annotations explain many items in the text, give more modern names for some of the insects, and completely identify some of the authors and books briefly referred to by Holt.
