New York, NY, Baillière Brothers, 1861. 8vo (23.0 x 14.2 cm). 68 pp. Publisher's extensively blind-stamped cloth with gilt title on front cover and spine.

The start of historical malacology in the United States, and a great tool for finding even the most obscure authors and papers from the early days of American malacology. Written by the American malacologist George Washington Tryon (1838-1888). Provenance: stamp of the American malacologist Richard Irwin Johnson (1925-2020) in the top margin of the front free endpaper and title page. Very slight wear to spine ends, but otherwise an excellent copy - rarely seen in this fine state.
