This book is a monumental work and it is an essential work for anyone interested in the varied and abundant Bivalved mollusks that are found along the Eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean from the Arctic waters down to the warm waters off Baja California. The book is extremely informative and the illustrations and the photographs are absolutely first rate. With the surge in interest in the Bivalves as we are seeing with the great number of copies of Huber's "Compendium of Bivalves" that we are selling we feel that this book belongs right beside Huber's as a close up look at a very special Bivalve fauna that you will find in this book. This is a used book that is in almost new condition. This book is no longer in print and we have only 1 copy.
