Report on the Invertebrata of Massachusetts, Comprising the Mollusca, Crustacea, Annelida, and Radiata
[GOULD, Augustus A.]
Part of a zoological and botanical survey of the state of Massachusetts, this book relates anything you could want to know about invertebrates, including a special section on "Noxious and Valuable Animals." The author has a very low opinion of the the wood-eating "limnoria terebrans" but enjoys oysters and clams.
