Shell Books (1684-1912)

When appropriate, book entries include: format and plate number, author, title, subtitle, statement of responsibility, edition, place of publication, publisher, date of publication, pagination, size (height by width), and notes.

Shell entries include: common name of the species, size (height, width, depth), scientific name—genus and species—(the adoption of the binominal nomenclature system required that all species be refered to by their genus and species names), author and date (the name of the person who originally introduced the species and the year when the proposal was made. In some instances the name and year may be enclosed in parentheses, indicating that after publication some alteration to the original classification was made).
