This is the first of two volumes that were done in this series. The series was discontinued after the second volume. There are not a great number of shells that are treated in either of the two volumes but what shells there are have a very well done description and the illustrations which take up the major part of this book are extremely well done. Among the species covered are those that are endemic to the Galapagos Islands and some that are found on the Eastern Pacific coast of South America.
