    Favourite seashells for collectors include cowries, cones, mitres, volutes and strombs, but the shells of molluscs like these account for barely 5% of the tens of thousands of known species of marine shell. This beautifully produced book, illustrated with meticulous full-page colour portraits of extraordinary specimens, is an introduction to the natural history of shells and the hobby of collecting, as well as an aesthetic celebration of their extraordinary and varied shapes, colours and textures.
