Sea Shells have enchanted mankind as far as records go back. Their shape, texture, size, color, and modes of adaptations seem inexhaustible. People find pleasure in collecting them and artists have incorporated them into everything from architecture to jewelry. This book, with the collaboration of the Delaware Museum of Natural History, created a beautiful and revealing presentation of sea shells, one of the most elaborate published. Using black and white along with full color photos, the readers is presented with detailed descriptions and information about each shell featured. An introductory text for each shell details its history and information. Wonderful reference for any novice collector or oceanographer student.
