    Tarantulas of the World by Heinz-Josef Peters
    Books 1 and 2

    Book 1 has 162 pages, Book 2 has 148. This is a 2 volume encyclopedia of tarantulas. All pictures are in color and labeled with scientific names. There are also distribution maps and occasionally pictures of the type of habitat each species is found in. Along the edge of the page there is a scale depicting the day and night temperature range, humidity, and terrain type. I'm sure there's a lot more information but the books are in German so I can really only comment on the pictures, and there are alot of them!

    They're not detailed enough to use as a definitive ID guide, but it's a starting point, and a pretty color book of tarantula pictures. I wouldn't say the pictures are of the same quality as Rick Wests' page. But it's a handy little reference for those of us who like to page through books and look at pictures! The more knowledgeable among us may find it lacking.
