It's about SeaShells and other mollusks like the octopus and the squid! Wonderful soft cover book, Mollusks, from 1960s with amazing black & white full page plates (31), 6 full page color plates, and 31 other illustrations, some of which are wonderful sketches, some charts. If you had the nerve to take apart this little jewel, you could frame the plates. The color plates can actually be removed without effecting the text of the book as they are in one section separate from the text. There are 3 color plates (6 images as they are front and back) with beautiful color illustrations of seashells and one glorious one of octopus and squid. Many of the plates, both blk white & color, have numbered items with corresponding names at the bottom of the page for a cabinet of curiosities type feel.
This book has some cover wear on edges but binding is tight and pages are clean. There are a few spots on text part where someone has marked some info with an ink pen. I found this on three pages. May have missed one but basically the pages are in really good shape to be 44 years old. Author is Paul Bartsch.
Love the old matte paper and the color plates are a little thicker paper with a matte sheen.
Convo if you want to see more pictures.
Lots of interesting tidbits in this book. There are 11 pages with 5 chapters: The Ranking Invertebrates, The Bivalves, The Toothshells, The Snails and Their Allies, The Octopuses, Squid, and Their Kin.
Shipping is $2.65 for media mail.
