Rare. John Blackwall (1790–1881) was a British zoologist and renowned arachnologist. The present book, Blackwall's magnum opus, took more than a decade to produce. With only a small lens, he fully described over 300 spiders; 67 of these were new to science. The book is beautifully illustrated with plates showing 272 different spiders.
