Little is known of the entomologist S.A. Shaw. He was an active collector of insects from 1890 until 1934, and donated specimens to the University of New Hampshire.
A book recording facts and observations about Jamaican ant species. It also includes two imaginative stories, perhaps intended for children, to illustrate the behaviour of ants. The book is illustrated by pen and ink sketches and water colours (50 pages).
The book belonged to H.J.H. Borley, Director of Game, Fish and Tsetse, Nyasaland. It was donated by his son-in-law Michael O'Donoghue in 2007.
