A Handbook to Australian Seashells will help you to identify most of the shells you find, no matter where you are on the Australian coast.

It includes over 375 species of the most common seashells found along our seashores. Each one is illustrated with a beautiful colour photograph showing its colours, patterns, shape and sculpture.
