A Listing of Living Mollusca
compiled by Yoshihiro Goto & Guido T. Poppe

ISBN 9788886070232, published in1996, L'Informatore Piceno, Ancona Italy, hardbound in navy blue cloth with gold stamped lettering, in four volumes, 1662 pages, in 4 volumes 8¼ by 11¾ inches (about 21.5 by 30 cm)

This is truly an amazing compilation which is a reference work for more than 41,000 names at the species level of living mollusks . It follows the format used by K.C. Vaught in her "Classification" and expands upon it by bringing the name down to the specific level. The work is cross referenced with Part 1 Volume 1  and 2 are an alphabetical listing of species names along with their author  followed by their family and generic placement as well as an assigned species number to aid in cross referencing the species name to its taxonomic placement in the second two volumes where the names are listed in the accepted taxonomic order.  This set is in as new condition and it is the first set that I have seen offered for sale in a very long time. I think that there were only a few copies printed of this monumental work. It is an incredibly useful tool for collectors and for professionals as well.
