Acer indentification

Hello,
I’m new to the forum so forgive me for leaping straight in with a question!
We have been lucky enough to move to a new house recently with the most magnificent established Acer collection on a half acre plot. We have counted 26 so far - they range from shrubs size to beautiful trees, colours from deep burgundy to almost fluorescent orange. Truly gorgeous.

I bought a book ‘Japanese Maples’ by J.D. Vertrees (very apt!) but this is more about care and propagation than an identifying tool. Can anybody recommend a book, website or society that might help? I’d love to know what they are and learn more about their care.
Thank you
Lizzie 😊
