An Epitome of the Natural History of the Insects of India and the Islands in the Indian Seas is a significant entomological work authored by Edward Donovan, originally published in 1800. This comprehensive volume is a pioneering effort in the study of Indian insects, providing detailed descriptions and illustrations of over two hundred and fifty insect species. Donovan's meticulous work includes the depiction of many newly discovered and exotic species, making it a valuable resource for the understanding of insect biodiversity in India and the Indian seas.

Edward Donovan, a respected naturalist and entomologist of his time, employed the Linnaean system of classification and drew upon the writings of other systematic authors like Fabricius to organize and describe the insects in this publication. The book's detailed engravings and descriptions offer a glimpse into the entomological knowledge and scientific exploration of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. An Epitome of the Natural History of the Insects of India is not only a testament to Donovan's dedication to the field but also a valuable historical reference for those interested in the natural history and entomology of the Indian subcontinent.
