Still going in his 90s Herbert Levi & I helped each other in the 60s, he mainly helping me to study spiders. This handy little book is still by far the best U.S. & Canadian [plus European & other species] guide to spiders, plus the other arachnids[scorpions etc],centipedes & millipedes. For example, 12 species of wolf spiders are lovingly depicted in color by the artist Nicholas Strekalovsky. In addition to the full body view,diagrams of faces & eyes[usually 8] are neatly displayed;& webs also. Both children & adults can,with this book,safely admire 17 of the world's several hundred species of scorpions,one species{Africa] reaching 7 inches in length.
