No defects noted and interior text and illustration pages are bright, tight, and white. No marks of any sort. This Catalog of all known scorpions, extant as well as fossil, is intended as a taxonomic reference book based on published scientific literature. Its purpose is to make available the most comprehensive possible information on scorpion taxonomy to the specialist as well as to the layperson. The Catalog is provided with an Index which allows the user to search for all published scorpion names. Because scorpions are so prevalent in subtropical and tropical regions, their scientific discovery largely accompanied the exotic, "colonial" activities of naturalists from the late 18th century through the early 20th century. Scorpions were brought from Egypt by the scientists who followed Napoleon's conquests, from South America by the missionaries, and from India by British army naturalists. The process of discovery initiated by these individuals continues to this day, with modern scientists exploring many parts of the globe. The only existing complete survey of the world fauna, with keys to all taxa, was published by Kraepelin (1899), and this work remains an important source for practitioners of scorpion taxonomy. Our desire to provide a complete scorpion catalog one hundred years after Kraepelin's was motivated by several factors. First, the sheer number of species and subspecies known to us now is more than four times that known to Kraepelin. Second, the classification of scorpions has been greatly modified by the addition of many new genera and even families that were unknown or unrecognized in his day. Finally, a huge amount of information on scorpion nomenclature, morphology, biogeography, and phylogeny has been published during this period that further justifies the need for this Catalog. Until the 1950s, morphological characters used in scorpion taxonomy were mostly simple and repetitive, being based largely upon morphosculpture, meristics (mainly pectinal tooth counts) and coloration of the cuticle. Today's taxonomy still relies almost entirely on morphological characters, and the use of molecular and biochemical techniques have thus far received only modest and sporadic attention.
