Dupre, Gerard
Des Scorpions et des Hommes - Une Histoire de la Scorpionologie de L’Antiquite a Nos Jours
Editions Arachnides (2008).
ISBN 978-2-9531551-0-5 I have not seen this book yet. The following information has been released from the publisher: "Historians of science have not paid much interest in the history of zoology and even less than the scorpionology. This gap is now partially filled with this book. The scorpions have always fascinated people in the same way that snakes across the danger they can pose to everyone. To classify these animals within the meaning of the zoological term is the subject of the first part of this study. Then the biology of these animals will be explored in the course of history since the earliest human writing until today. Finally, the main part of the book will reveal all reports that different civilizations and religions have had with scorpions through the mythology and medicine. This french book of 424 pages includes 58 figures and is based on about 1200 references found in a dozen different languages. From size 14 x 20, it is available from the APCI at a price of 20 euros."
