5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must for any Serious Shell Collector 15 décembre 2009
Par Houston Sheller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I discovered this amazing book at the Conchologists of America (COA) 2008 Convention in San Antonio, Texas (July 5-9, 2008). It is a pretty heavy book as far as shell tomes go, and hardcovered. It is also a nice, thick (about 1.25"), and large (about 9" x 12") volume offering scientific data on an exceptional variety of marine gastropods (snails).

The book is in full color, consisting mainly of plates of shells arranged in typical fashion for this subject, ranging from lower-evolved (cowries and murex) to more higher-evolved species (cones and volutes). It differs from Tucker and Abbott's Compendium of Seashells (another at the top of my shell library list) in that shells do not display in individual picture frames; rather, 10 to 12 shells are photographed together to fill the page and numbered for reference, corresponding to shell data on the bottom of the page. In cases where the shell is normally viewed from two different angles, such as with a cowry's smooth, domed "top" and the toothed aperture on the "bottom", pictures are provided for both angles.

The only real anomaly - I hesitate to call it a complaint - I had with the book was in the index. While the index is well-detailed and easy to use, whatever software was used to print the index had the apparent tendency to bunch together the letters of the longer scientific shell names. So, while "Cypraea lynx" (a cowry) may be easy to read, "Xenophora conchyliophora" (a carrier shell) may be almost indecipherable.

All in all, a fantastic volume for any shell library. And this is not just a collection of great shell photography by an amateur - Alain Robin has co-authored several other shell references, including one on Mitridae with Jean-Claude Martin and another on Fasciolariidae with Daniel Mallard.

In 2008, I paid $50.00 for this book, about what I would expect for a full-color, hardcover book of this thickness and detail. Sad that it is out of print, but keep looking for it...it's worth the effort!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for Id, very little data provided 18 décembre 2013
Par D. J Stemke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Over the years I have amassed a large library in Conchology (Seashell) literature. Each book has its place in my library. This book was recommended to me because it is one of the most comprehensive lists of Gastropods, and this is certainly true. However, I find the lack of data in the descriptions that comes with each specimen limit the utility of this book. What this books offers is an image of the shell with very little else. Personally, I wish this book had gone just a little more with SOMETHING else; general locality data, habitat, specimen identification (variability), and/or specimen frequency. One can argue that this book is a starting point, find the specimen and then go on-line to search for more data, which is probably what most people do with this book. Others will be very happy with the book though, I just find it wanting. For the price I am really more a fan of The Compendium of Seashells Tucker/Dance for general shell identification and use regional guides to help me ultimately identify my specimens and give me what I need.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 World's Best Encyclopedia of Gastropods!! 8 juin 2012
Par MrDrProfessor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is by far the best book ever composed that encompasses the Gastropods (single shelled mollusks).

I saw this book a while ago and being the shell fancier that I am, I knew that I just had to have it.
Unfortunately though, it has been out of print for a few years and finding a new copy from the U.S. is difficult. Most of them that are out there are coming from Europe, because the main publishing company is in Germany, and prices are not cheap.
Even though it will be a slight challenge, It is greatly worth it, containing over 12,000 photos that cover over 5,000 species.
For me, this book made a terrific birthday gift.

If you are a shell collector, or are just interested in them, this book is definitely for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The definitive scholarly guide to marine gastropod shells! 19 septembre 2011
Par Maui Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
If you are VERY serious about malacology (the study of molluscs) and the systematic identification of the seashells in your collection, this is THE definitive guide to identification of marine gastropod shells. It's big and heavy, but the exhaustive collection of excellent photographs of museum-quality shells is worth the money and strain on your hands and biceps! I live in Hawaii and am a fairly serious collector. Like all scientists, I like to know the names (common and taxonomic) of the species I see in the field. The vast majority of really interesting molluscan shells in Hawaiian waters are those of gastropods, so this book has proven to be immensely useful. Again, if you're a scientist or serious amateur collector, this is the book to buy. Don't mess with the other smaller "field guides"... you won't need them after buying this book!
