"Barring a few scattering descriptions by European naturalists of such species as were brought home by the early travellers in this country, the history of North American conchology may be said to have begun where Thomas Say, in 1817, wrote the article on "Conchology" for the first American edition of Nicholson's Encyclopedia of Arts and Sciences." 27 pp. Includes Catalogue of the Mollusca of Michigan, Notes and Literature. Mildly soiled covers. Faint stamp "W. A. Bryan" on front cover. Otherwise covers are Very Good. Interior is tight, clean and Very Good+. Dr. Bryant Walker of Detroit was one of the leading malacologists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries
