When we look here in Flanders (the Dutch speaking part of Belgium) at the history of Myrmecology, written in Dutch, before 1970 it is very sad. In The Netherlands there are already reviews and determination keys in Dutch since +- 1860 and, sadly, for Belgium all you can find is in French. The first determination key for Belgian ants in Dutch is from the 1970’s by van Boven. But before that…

In our history you can only find a two-part work by Leo Senden, written and published in 1929. But all reviews you can find about those are bad critics by many scientists… I discovered the books more than 30 years ago and, surprisingly, I did find them very good (considering the time when they were published.). But who Leo Senden was I don’t know.

The other Dutch book was from Maurice Maeterlinck but… Original in French, translated in Dutch but who did that? He did also write books about bees and termites… And the termite-book was an illegal French version from a South African work… So, no original Dutch book!

And now my recent discovery: A site from The Netherlands has put Leo Sendens books online. You find scans from all the pages and pdfs…

He was a priest, trying to get the lessons in our Dutch schools in Dutch, not any more in French.
