Product Description

Two centuries ago there was one lover of shells in England who stands head and shoulders above the crowd. John Mawe (1766-1829) travelled the world in search of the most prized shells, and produced the world's first guide to their collection - The Voyager's Companion or Shell Collector's Pilot: with Instructions and Directions where to find the finest Shells.

This new book is a beautiful facsimile of that exquisite first volume, richly annotated and introduced by Jeffrey D Stilwell.
