Abstract:

One of the most valuable portions of this work is the beautiful set of 369 mollusk photographs and the 65 line drawings that go with the text. One of the major problems in identifying Texas coastal sea shells has long been the lack of adequate illustrations. No single text can be used to identify all the shallow-water shells of Texas. The systematic portion of this book, however, does bring together all the information on coastal species, so that most amateur shell collectors will be able to identify their finds.
