Using original Victorian prints, by collectable artist George Sowerby, naturalist
and author Dr Paul Chambers has produced the first comprehensive guide to shells
for over a century.
The original prints are intricately detailed (much better than photographs which
lack the exact detail of these drawings) and are a selling point in themselves but
will be complemented by informative but accessible text, including families and to
show what's edible, dangerous or belongs to mollusc families and in what part of
the country they can be discovered.
A delightful study by the leading expert and a must for anyone interested in learning
more about shells - or who just enjoys beach combing with the family.
