Martin Lister's English Spiders, 1678

Martin Lister's English Spiders, 1678


Although the original Latin work was translated into German as long ago as 1778, this is the first English translation of a classic work on spiders, De araneis. Lister, as the Foreword by J.L. Cloudsley-Thompson indicates, was a voluminous writer whose first publication on spiders appeared in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in 1671. Despite the outdated taxonomy this work is a pioneering study. Although the book is generally 'as new' condition, the folding plates between pages 69 and 71 have suffered from some mishandling. xv, (1), 208 pp.
