This handbook for the captive husbandry and breeding of tarantulas is now available in English translation, with updated taxonomy by the author. It includes two sections. The first is an introductory section discussing tarantula anatomy and life history, the relationships of tarantulas to other arthropods, and general information on vivarium setup and special requirements of tarantulas in captivity. Problems arising in captive care such as disease and parasites are discussed, as is the problem of tarantula bites on humans. The second section consists of individual accounts on some 40 of the more commonly kept species from around the world. These are illustrated in the book's 123 colour photographs. Peculiarities of each of these species are discussed, with special attention to their requirements in captivity.

The scientific achievements and forgotten legacy of a major Austrian research institute, from its founding in 1902 to its wartime destruction in 1945. The Biologische Versuchsanstalt was founded in Vienna in 1902 with the explicit goal to foster the quantification, mathematization, and theory formation of the biological sciences. Three biologists from affluent Viennese Jewish families—Hans Przibram, Wilhelm Figdor, and Leopold von Portheim–founded, financed, and nurtured the institute, overseeing its development into one of the most advanced biological research institutes of the time. And yet today its accomplishments are nearly forgotten. In 1938, the founders and other members were denied access to the institute by the Nazis and were forced into exile or deported to concentration camps. The building itself was destroyed by fire in April 1945. This book rescues the legacy of the “Vivarium” (as the Institute was often called), describing both its scientific achievements and its place in history. The book covers the Viennese sociocultural context at the time of the Vivarium's founding, and the scientific zeitgeist that shaped its investigations. It discusses the institute's departments and their research topics, and describes two examples that had scientific and international ramifications: the early work of Karl von Frisch, who in 1973 won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine; and the connection to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York.

Excerpt from The Vivarium: Being a Practical Guide to the Construction, Arrangement, and Management of Vivaria, Containing Full Information as to All Reptiles Suitable as Pets, How and Where to Obtain Them, and How to Keep Them in Health Up to the present time there has been no reliable work on the management of the many attractive batrachians, reptiles, etc., that can be readily kept in confinement. Yet there are no more charming and interesting pets than such as can be included in an amateurs Vivarium. For these reasons this book has been written, and readers may rely on the information given in the following pages being the outcome of practical experience, the result of my having kept these interesting and extraordinary animals for very many years. For information concerning some of the animals of which this book treats I am much indebted to the writings of Dr. Gunther, Mr. Boulenger, Dr. Stradling, and others, and to the obliging keeper of the Reptile House at the Zoological Gardens, London, Mr. J. Tyrrell. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
