This book is spiral bound and this is a Review Copy with the card taped to the front endpaper. It is a title from the Pictured-Key Nature Series. There are some stains to the cover upper right that has bled thru the title page to page 7. Some of the spider names have been underlined. One day only! Greatest troupe of trained animals in the world. Don't miss this opportunity to see death-defying parachutists, skilled performers on the flying trapeze, graceful and original dancers. These clever animals make their own apparatus for they are skilled engineers. See them spin and weave. Nothing like this has ever been presented before on any stage. This notice on the entertainment page of the newspaper might arouse curiosity, and some folks would hurry to see the accomplished creatures before it was too late. They would jump into the family car and fight the traffic downtown; or crowd into a jolting bus. A few others would just stroll out into the quiet back yard, knowing that for the ones who have learned to see, there is endless entertainment by thousands of performers. They would watch for spiders, knowing that these creatures are not always the villains in Nature's show. It is very easy to find a web under construction, and many have observed and admired the geometrical precision and beauty of orb webs. Less easy to see are other performances that are just as interesting: the ballooning of spiders; their courtship dances; young ones emerging from egg sacs; molting; methods of securing prey. This book is for the amateur nature lover as well as the experienced biologist Size: 6 1/2" X 8 1/2". Seller Inventory # 20124
