Hippolyte Crosse is for many malacologists a well-known name, but only limited information is until now published about his life and work. Just published: an extensive biography with data on his collection and his work for the Journal de Conchyliologie, his correspondents, an extended collation of this Journal for the years 1850-1900, an analysis of the subscribers to this Journal in the same period, a comparison with the German journal Malakozoologische Blätter, a collation of the molluscan parts of the Mission au Mexique et Guatemala (1870-1902), and a bibliography of Crosse’s publications.
We trust this will be useful for many malacologists, not only those interested in Neotropical snails.
