“The best manual that has yet been written on our land and freshwater shells.” – Journal of Conchology

While Carl Linnaeus is known to be the most influential animal scientist, William Turton focused his professional and leisure efforts to the study of shells and conchology. He published illustrated works on shells as well as editions of Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae. This rare first edition offers details on individual shells and shell types but is presented in a manner that would be accessible to the novice ‘seashell collector.’
