The Illustrated Guide to Molluscs
by Horst Janus
illustrated by Walter Sollner and Cynthia O'Brien

ISBN 9780287000559, published in 1982 by Harold Starke Ltd., London. England, this is the revised and expanded edition of the original 1965 publication, hardcover in green buckram binding with a printed dust-jacket, 180 pages, about 13 by 20 cm., or 5 by 8 inches, illustrated with black and white drawings of the 194 species included in the text, 1 full-page color photographic plate and 3 additional page size black and white drawings and black and white photographs.

This book is an English import and translation of the original work. I provided detailed coverage of the terrestrial and freshwater mollusks found in the United Kingdom. Both naive and introduced species are included in this book. It is up-to-date with name and classification changes to these mollusks up to the 1982 date of this publication. There is a comprehensive introductory section covering the biology and collection of these mollusks. The identification of the mollusks studied contains extremely good descriptions and the drawings are clear. This is a library copy and the dust-jacket is covered in clear plastic. There are some places on the front cover and the spine where the plastic cover has been torn. There is a small library label near the bottom of the spine and a few library stickers on the front end-paper. The body of the book is as new.
