Binney, the son of Amos Binney, whose own posthumous work on the Mollusks of the United States had been completed by Gould in 1857. Plates and text illustrations of the present work are numbered continuously with those of the first edition. The woodcuts are by Harry Marsh, illustrator of Harris's Insects, with color plates after drawings by Gould, Alexander Agassiz, J. Burkhardt, E.S. Morse and others. (Inventory #: 267774)
