Suggestions for ID sources?

Re: Suggestions for ID sources?
Thanks everyone Smile

The Compendium of Seashells (1983, unfortunately) apparently goes for $52 on the Chapters site, and is "on re-order", so unavailable at the moment.  I find it stupid as hell that amazon has no "new" copies available, yet used ones go from $120 to over $500.  Yeah.  Sure.  Okay.

The Eyewitness:  Shells is not available at all (and I don't trust buying used from third parties)

The conchbooks.de will not load for me, and the Encyclopedia of Marine Gastropods is not available new on chapters or amazon, only going "used" for $150 to $250!

The books on Femorale are very expensive Sad  I'll check out their images later on.

Another one I was looking at, also by Abbott, is A field guide to shells: Atlantic, gulf coasts and the west indies  which is over double the size of the other one I mentioned. 

wolfi - I just find it so unfortunate that, apparently, this particular scientific realm of study is so terribly under-represented online.  So much information, but so few people to share it!  I wish there was a way to "recruit" many more talented, knowledgeable people like yourself to the site to kick start things in the right direction.  As it stands, the place is really struggling for members Sad
