L. Koch and Graf E. von Keyserling: Die Arachniden Australiens

"Die Arachniden Australiens, nach der Natur beschrieben und abgebildet", the monumental work by L. Koch (1871 - 1881), continued by Graf E. von Keyserling (1885 - 1890), remains the benchmark literature on Australian arachnids up until today.
