Nyskick. –– ABSOLUT NYSKICK, verkar oläst! – Stort format, ca 22x28 cm! – Se fler bilder! –– A recognition guide and reference on shells, featuring an illustrated directory of 1,200 shells and shell families, information on habitat, distribution, and conservation, shell buying tips, and advice on maintaining a collection. / "This is a great book. Just what I was looking for. I needed a field guide type book on seashells, since I'm a big collector. If you're like me, this is the book for you. Weather you're a beginning collector or serious. It is a good sized book, pretty large, thick book full of many pages of different types of seashells. Each specific seashell photograph is accompanied with detailed information on the size, distribution, depth, and how common or rare. I know it doesn't seem like one, but this is a great big field guide. Don't judge a book by its cover! I was surprised myself. I didn't think it was until I opened it. In the beginning, it also explains the scientific anatomy of the shells, and how they grow, the organs of the living animal, different classes of shells, etc. It also talks about the history of man's uses of shells in different cultures since early times and how the forms of shells are used in the inspirations of the arts. It is a wonderful book. It really is like a encyclopedia of shells. I just love it!!!" / "As a begginner in shell collecting I have looked at many shell handbooks and find this one to be the best guide to identifying and classifying the shell in hand. It is comprehensive and descriptive to the degree that if the specific shell isn't listed the descriptions of the class are enough to go on to describe whatever shell I have found. But the great number of shell photos are very helpful and usually show what I am looking for. I like the way the families and classes are represented. There is enough information to inform me and yet, it doesn't boggle me down with a biology dissertation. More than any other quide, this one helps me the most." –– GLÖM INTE ATT TITTA PÅ ALLA MINA ANDRA BÖCKER! –– Samma fraktpris oavsett hur många böcker du beställer! (Gäller inom Sverige)
