"It is not to be supposed that this present list was produced without a struggle. As an end work it was preceded both by the amassing of an extensive collection of some 10,000 species of shells and their arrangement in accessible drawers and cabinets, in order for study.
This study was furtherer by a library supplied with a copy of every important book in the field that search was able to provide. The whole housed in the authors private Museum at Lake Tequesquitengo in Mexico, has provided a resource that mede this integrative work possible."
A. Gordon Melvin (Author de "Sea Shells of the World")
