Description

Excerpt from Land and Freshwater Mollusca of India, Vol. 3: Including South Arabia, Baluchistan, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Nepal, Burmah, Pegu, Tenasserim, Malay Peninsula, Ceylon, and Other Islands of the Indian Ocean; Supplementary to Messrs. Theobald and Hanley's Conchologia Indica; Part I, November, 1920 Much has lately appeared in the public press on Research. It is of interest to put a case like this on record (if only to show how valuable scientific work and knowledge is lost for ever for want of Government support.) To show how research is valued and rewarded, Museums are built at an enormous known cost and filled with specimens at an enormous unknown cost; then a proper scientific Staffto deal with them is grudged, expenses are cut down, and the record is never utilized. In this instance Nevill lost the credit which many years of close study should have brought him not among those he had worked with, but among the general public. I am glad I have the opportunity of bringing his labours to notice. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
