Monograph of the Land & Freshwater Mollusca of the British Isles is a book written by John William Taylor, a British malacologist, and published in 1893. The book is a comprehensive study of the land and freshwater mollusks (snails and slugs) found in the British Isles, and is considered a seminal work in the field of British malacology.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part provides an introduction to the study of mollusks, including their anatomy, classification, and distribution. The second part contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of the various species of land and freshwater mollusks found in the British Isles.

The illustrations in the book are particularly noteworthy, as they were created by the author himself and are considered some of the most accurate and detailed depictions of mollusks ever produced. The book includes over 600 hand-drawn illustrations, including detailed drawings of the shells, soft anatomy, and reproductive organs of each species.

Taylor's work was considered groundbreaking at the time, as it was one of the first comprehensive studies of mollusks in the British Isles. His detailed descriptions and accurate illustrations helped to advance the study of malacology, and his work remains an important reference for researchers and enthusiasts in this field today.
