It provides a classification guide, covers the basics of conchology, geographical location, fossil records, conservation, and ecology. It gives guidance on what to look for when buying shells, how to start and maintain a collection, and pictures over 1200 different types of shells with information on type, rarity, size and the depth at which they can be found. All-in-all, the most complete shell guide available.
