Trilobites of the British Isles is the first illustrated modern overview of the trilobite faunas of Great Britain and the Irish Republic. It is intended as a comprehensive reference volume to the approximately four thousand, four hundred different species of trilobite recorded from the British Isles over the last three centuries.
Of this faunal list, fewer than four hundred species are known from complete or almost complete specimens, and of these, three hundred and forty three species and subspecies are illustrated here. Many are the finest and best preserved specimens known to science.
Trilobites of the British Isles will appeal to casual admirers and committed collectors alike and it will also serve as a reference for academics and other serious students of this perennially fascinating group of extinct arthropods.
