"Nautilus" is a book composed of 10 main headings covering these mollusks' biology and paleobiology. The main sections include 37 chapters written by experts and this field of study, and dozens of them have contributed to their writing to this project. The book will be of benefit mainly to malacologists. But there is enough material in the book to offer collectors as well. This book is a used library copy. It has some wear on the dust-jacket, and there is a catalog label on the spine. It has a few rubber-stamped impressions with the library's name. The body of the book appears to be new.
