Cecil WARBURTON (1854 - ?)

The mental capacity of spiders; web architecture; spiders that live under water, even though they need air to breath; spiders that mimic ants; spiders that mimic bird droppings; cannibalism; odd spider mating rituals--these are just some of the topics in this lively book about the modes and habits of common spiders, written by a zoologist. - Summary by Sue Anderson
