Catalogue of the marine mollusks of Japan with descriptions of new species and notes on others collected by Frederick Stearns.
Detroit, Frederick Stearns, 1895. 8vo (22.7 x 14.6 cm). viii, 196 pp., 11 lithographed, engraved, and phototype plates. Publisher's green full cloth with gilt title on the front board. Floral patterned endpapers.= The preface states that Frederick Stearns visited Japan twice and collected many new and little known molluscs. Stearns made a simple catalogue, with one plate, of the shells collected during his first visit, but it was Henry Pilsbry who reviewed the material more thoroughly, and published part of the results in the "Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia", and in "The Nautilus". This work, published by Stearns, contains the catalogue and results, as well as a great deal of additional information. Apart from this simply yet elegantly bound edition, there also seems to be one in wrappers (cf. Junk cat. 278). A very good, clean copy. Rare, especially in this state.
