The North American Grasshoppers, volume I, Acrididae, Gomphocerinae and Acridinae
By Daniel Otte
Harvard, 1981
This is a very thorough treatment of the Slant-face Grasshoppers. It is full of information on behavior, has descriptions and maps of all species, as well as high quality illustrations of nearly all. It is extremely useful as an identification guide, as well as for learning about these fascinating insects. It covers all of North America from Panama northward. The treatment is still nearly up to date, with little having changed since it was published. I believe it is out of print now, but I find it still occasionally available. Hopefully it will be reprinted.

How to Know the Grasshoppers, Cockroaches, and Their Allies
By Jacques R. Helfer
Wm. C. Brown Company, 1962
Part of the original Pictured Key Nature Series. I have only seen the 1962 original paperback. There was a 1987 Dover reprint, apparently of the 1972 (2nd) edition.
Covers grasshoppers, termites, cockroaches, and mantids. Has 540 good black-and-white illustrations. Though somewhat dated, has more thorough coverage of some groups (e.g., Pygmy Grasshoppers, Tetrigidae) than more recent popular guides. Worth finding if you are interested in orthoptera.

The 1987 Dover reprint of the 2nd edition includes a new preface, new footnotes, new illustrations, treatment of crickets, and a

Key to the Grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acrididae) of Florida
By Trevor Randall Smith, Jason G. Froeba, and John L. Capinera

Reflecting recent research one subspecies, Schistocerca alutacea rubiginosa (Scudder), has been elevated to species status Schistocerca rubiginosa (Harris) in this key."
