This is a used copy of this very scarce book. The book is in very nice condition and the covers, which usually are tattered, have been covered wit a clear plastic film, this coating is somewhat unevenly applied leading to low, raised ridges. This book is excellent and takes a realistic view the very variable species of Volutes found in Australian waters. It is a far cry from the nomenclature for these shells that we have today where every slight variation in a shell is named as a separate species.
