Pliocene Mollusca of Southern Florida 
by Alex A. Olsson & Anne Harbison
with contributions by William G. Fargo & Henry A. Pilsbry

1990 reprint of original 1953 publication of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia by the Shell Museum and Educational Foundation of Sanibel, Florida, hardcover green board library sewn binding,  about 5¾ by 9 inch size, (about 14.5 by 22 cm), 457 pages with an additional 65 pages of black and white page size photographic plates plus their keys, 

This book although it appeared in print in 1953 is still considered to be the "standard " reference guide for  identification guide to over 450 species of molluscan species found in south Florida's Pliocene Epoch (5.3 to 2.8 millions of years in the past) when most of what we know as Florida today was the bottom of the sea. The descriptions given for the shells is thoroughly written and the plates are clear and detailed. The original work, and a 1979 reprint as well as this reprint are all now out of print and any copies that usually come along are from old library collections. We were delighted to come across one of a very limited number of  brand new copies of this book. The book is in great shape but there are a few bumps along the bottom edge of the front cover.
