Pp. 803, (1); nearly 2000 fine color photos and a few line-drawings. Color pictorial laminated boards (hardcover), thick folio (12 1/2 x 9 3/8 inches). This is the most comprehensive guide to reptiles and amphibians for the terrarium every published. It was originally published in German by Edition Leipzig with the title "Lexikon der Terraristik und Herpetologie." It was translated from the German by U.E. Friese. The fine color photos are especially well done. This volume is from the research library of herpetologist Kevin W. Marx with his signature on the front endpaper. It is inscribed by four herpetologists to Marx on the front endpaper. This is a very heavy book; extra postage for shipment to Canada and overseas will be required.

Here is a truly comprehensive and beautiful volume covering all the reptiles and amphibians kept in terrariums plus virtually all the oddballs and rarities any hobbyist is likely to ever see or want to know about. Illustrated in full color are hundreds of common and rare reptiles and amphibians, invertebrates, food animals, terrarium plants, environments, and diseases, with hundreds more black and white photos and line drawings. The authoritative and useful text covers thousands of species, the majority of genera, and hundreds of topics dealing with terrarium care and natural history. The alphabetical arrangement makes it easy to find information on almost any topic you can think of. -- Midwest Book Review
