KIRKUS REVIEW

The founders of the Stix Rare Shell Gallery of New York and Dr. Abbott, a malacologist at the Academy of Natural Sciences, have prepared an excellent study of sea shell lore, collecting, and the influence of shell forms on art. H. Landshoff's 203 photographs (82 in color) will show that shells are among the most ""beguiling objects on earth.
