Versluys to forego the completion of his work so auspiciously inaugurated by the production of his masterly monographs on the Chrysogorgiid and the Primnoid, works which, in the opinion of the present writer, are not surpassed in completeness and manner of presentation by any other publication on the Alcyonaria.The responsibility of taking up the task thus laid down, and of attempting to hold up the standard of excellence thus set before him, is keenly felt by the author.It is a pleasure to bear testimony to the excellent condition of the collection and the care taken in preserving the records and securing the safety of the specimens themselves.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
