"The depredations of the voracious native white ant have become St. Helena legend. They had an eccentric fondness for theological books, it was always said, and they contentedly munched their way through the entire library, leaving only the bindings."

~Simon Winchester, Outposts: Journeys to the Surviving Relics of the British Empire, 1985.
