First published in 1985, this is one of the few books that actually covers theraphosid systematics. There is information on over 650 species, history of theraphosid classification, etc. The only let down I felt were the illustrations, which could have been more detailed.

A must have if interested in tarantula classification (but one must remember the date it was published and the fact there are so many species listed with information on each, don't expect massive amounts of individual species info!).

Cheers,
Steve
