Catalogue Note

John Lubbock (1834-1913) was Darwin's friend and neighbour. The two men exchanged many letters on a range of scientific subjects including entomology. Lubbock had a particular interest in the social behaviour of ants: he and his daughters kept an ants' nest in his study under constant observation from 1874 to 1882.
