Many of you have already had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Thach at COA conventions and many more of you are already familiar with his 3 previous books covering the mollusks found in Vietnam. You will be aware then of his enthusiasm for and great efforts to bring and introduce the shells from Vietnam to the attention of shell collectors and shell professional workers around the world. This book is easily his best one to date. Even if you already own one or more of his earlier books, you will probably find the new material covered in this book worth having. I have been told by Dr. Thach that this book was done as a limited printing of only 150 copies. That small number I suspect will soon be exhausted and I don't know if it will be reprinted once the initial printing sells out. If you want a copy of this book I suggest that you order it quickly.
