Mitridae Costellariidae
by Alain Robin & Jean-Claude Martin
ISBN 392591966 ,2004, published by Xenophora and ConchBooks, 66 pages including 32 full size color plates, about 8½ by 11¾ inches (21.5 by 30.25 cm) in laminated board covers

This is a beautiful and very well done work. As I am sure you know, this is a very large family of shells and the identification of them is often difficult. This book will be a big help in getting them in order.It is mostly a visual check list with minimal text giving name, author, date size range, and locality. . There are 32 full color plates and each species is shown in one or more views showing their variations. There probably will always be controversy when it comes to the nomenclature and taxonomy of the shells in this family but this book is a very good jumping off point to begin further research.
