Southwood, T.R.E. & Leston, D., 1959
Land and Water Bugs of the British Isles
One of the best volumes in Warne's Wayside & Woodland Series, it's still the most recent work to cover British hemiptera. The keys generally work well and the illustrations are accurate.
All but unobtainable secondhand, it is now available on CD and in print (facsimile edition) from Pisces Conservation.
