i've only got a copy of the first,
i think it's def. worth its money:
good keys to the different families of African spiders. detailed illustrations, descriptions, distribution, etc.

only thing negative i can think off is that it doesn't include colorPix,... all images are in greyscale.

Awesome, thanks Steven.

I'd like to find more books on trapdoor spiders and true spiders, with technical and scientific features such as found in these two volumes. Especially on species of Latin America and Asia origin.

Any suggestions?

And of course, the original inquiry is still open on Africa.

I did find a review in the Book forum, "South African Spiders" by Martin R Filmer. Currently OOP in the States.

An Introduction To The Spiders Of South East Asia by Frances & John Murphy

“This is a most remarkable book – with 250 colour images of spiders, taken by one of the most talented photographers to grace our field – Frances Murphy.

It is a superb introduction to the spiders of a significant chunk of the world – maximally useful to collectors and field biologists alike.

Prof. Norman Platnick. Review AAS Journal 28. 2001
A well written, and entertaining book, which will leave the reader considerably better informed about the spiders of South East Asia.

im interested in this book.anyone have a copy?
