The Common Spiders of the United States
by James Henry Emerton
Publisher: Ginn & Co. 1902
Number of pages: 260
A small and simple book for readers who, without making a special study of the subject, want to know a little about spiders in general and especially those species that they often meet with. It is hoped this book will answer the purpose and help to lessen the prejudice against spiders, and lead to a more general acquaintance with them.
