Long out of print and always in demand this is the most comprehensive treatment of the family Conidae that we have available. There have been a lot of new species described since this book was published but it is still a great source book for basic information and identification for these shells. This is a used books and it is in very nice condition. The binding is nice and tight. The previous owner has a blind stamp embossed on the title page and also has written his name inside the front cover and on the top pages when the book is closed. A second copy has the previous owner's bookplate inside the front cover.
