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 usually very high priced. These books easily can pass as new.
