As a shell collector, who has many books on shells, in my opinion, this is without question, "the BEST coffee table book on shells available." It
also contains great information.

This is the shell book you would want either for yourself or for a collecting interested friend.

I fully agree with Patricia K. Teague, including that this book has some beautiful photographs of Sea Shells, and is not an ID field guide. Only critical point is this book has been published several times in different editions and formats and under more than one title, often with abridged contents. Not nearly as impressive in oversized trade paper binding, The full hardcover version is fantastic. I've seen the (1st edition, 1968) early edition with tipped in photo lithographs. Odd and bulky in that form, but a conversation piece. A possibly better, and less expensive way to go is the concise hard cover edition under the title "The Shell: Gift of the Sea" Abradale/Abrams 1984 ISBN 0-8109-8058-4. Essentially the same book as "The Shell: 500 Million Yeas of Inspired Design". But for those of us on a budget, the paper back is great too.

Caveat Emptor. The image supplied is that of the fine and handsomely produced Harry Abrams edition, but the details of the description are for a much cheaper low quality knockoff of this fine book. The early issues of this book have very high quality tipped in color plates. The original book lacks a date and has no ISBN (it has an SBN, but if you prepend the 0 as normally suggested, you will find it refers to a completely different title.) The short of it is that if you order from this data, you may or may not get what you want. If you want a specific edition, I suggest that you contact the seller before you order.
