Sally Kaicher is best known for the packs of shell identification cards that she published over htecourse of many years. Less well known is a series of separate sections of publications that she did, each covering and serving as an identification guide covering a family or familes of shells, mostly common, found in the Indo-Pacific. Each of the sections has a page or pages of introductory material on the molluscs that are covered, followed by black and white plates with examples of these molluscs with a key to the shells on the left hand page facing the plates. This is a used book and it contains some hand written corrections and notes on some of the pages, The fifth issue has an inscription and signature "Sally K" on the front cover and there is a rubber stamp with "Department of Living Invertebrates" on the front loose endpaper. There are some scratches and some pots on the covers of the book Usually when you come across separate sections of these publications they are in very poor condition. These are the best preserved copies that I've come across.
