Bathurst: Crawford House, 1991. Quarto, full colour photographs, a fine copy in dustwrapper.
The first book since 1888 to cover all recent species of the world. In the family Pectinidae, almost 300 species and subspecies are treated, of which more than 200 are illustrated. Of the mainly deepwater Propeamussiidae, more than 100 species are discussed and the common ones figured. The system of the genera and subgenera is based on the modern taxonomy of the families.
