Those of you that already own the first two volumes in this series will automatically place an order for this new and final volume in the series. It is of the same high quality that was given to us in the first two books. Delsaert not only presents us with sharp and clear color photos of the shells in this book, he also gives us a very detailed discussion of the material covered. Since this is the final volume there is also a review of the systematics of all the other families of land snails found in the Solomon Islands. It is a pleasure to add this book to the growing number of titles that deal with non-marine molluscs.
