I am ashamed to say that although this book has been around since 2007 it had escaped my notice and it is only now that, thanks to a customer's request, we are adding this book to our inventory. It is to say the least a very important work on this family of Terrestrial mollusks and there are many newly described shells at the species level and above. The photographs and drawings are very sharp and will help the user differentiate between the often look-alike shells in the family. There is a great deal of biological information about these mollusks as well as descriptive material about the shells. I am glad that we are now able to offer it to you now and I am sure that those of you with an interest in the non-marine mollusks will want a copy of this book for you reference library. These are new copies but they have some very slight bumps at the front bottom edge of the cover that they received in shipping.
