Compendium of LandshellsNow long out of print, this work is still very much in demand. It is the only comprehensive book covering a large number the terrestrial shells found throughout the world pictured in 2000 color photographs. There is a tremendous demand for this book since it is the most comprehensive guide ever written on the land-shells. It has become difficult to find now and when copies do appear they are often very highly priced. This book has been used but it can almost pass as a new copy.
