      Neat book- The Genus Avicularia

      I saw this mentioned on a forum close to a year ago now (don't remember which one). On a whim I searched Amazon, and actually found one! It was published in 1992. There's a lot of interesting info in it, as well as drawings, maps, etc. It's obviously pretty long in the tooth compared to the hobby today, but still very cool.

      Even more interesting, it was autographed!

      I can take some shots of some of the interesting bits if anyone's interested.

      I don't have a flatbed scanner at home here, but I'll look through it and see what could be interesting and snap pics of a few pages.
