I bought this book when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines. I used it to check off some of the shells I have in my collection, especially the ones that I got while I was there. On of my prizes is a Zambo Murex found on p. 75 of this little guide. I met Mr. Evaristo Zambo who discovered this species and have his autograph in my book!

A useful guide for the beginning seashell collector. Contains color photos as well as descriptions and locations. It is easy to use and suitable for middle age children.
