This is the book that got me started. 17 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yes it's way out of date. Yes the super rare shells listed in the book are often no longer even mildly rare. Yes it is drawings only. Sigh. But this is the book that got me and all too many others hooked into this area. 30 years later I still love the hobby. Give it to a child and watch him/her grow.

For the Ageless Avid Beachcomber 28 Jun. 2006
By The Professor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like to collect seashells, then this handy key to the typical shells found on a beach may be of interest. It comes in a handy soft cover and is pocket sized, so it will easily fit in one's bathing suit's waist. It is slender, although several of the easy to find shells are listed, photos are reasonable and of good quality. It is similar to other such books, although not quite a book and not quite a pamphlet. It's in a league of its own!

Seashells 11 Jan. 2007
By Judith A. Missakian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was exactly the book on shells that I was looking for for my grandson. I remember the "Little Golden Guides" when I was a child and was so happy to see that they still exist. Good illustrations and compact easy to carry size.

great book! 25 April 2009
By Grace Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My family goes to the beach every year and we always collect a ton of shells. I wanted a book that wouldn't take up much room in the luggage and would be easy to carry on the beach. This book was a great price (especially compared to others!) and had pictures and information of every shell we could find! It was great, I definitely recommend!

I have always loved seashells and this book helped me to identify them. Because of this book I have a HUGE collection of all kinds of seashells!
