Cowries and Their Relatives of Southern Africa
2nd edition includes supplement
by William R. Liltved
This is the second edition of this book and it was published in Jan. 2000. It is the most comprehensive guide to the many unusual, endemic Cypraea, Trivia and Ovulidae that are found in the waters of South Africa.This book is 8.5 by12 inches about 21.5 by30.5 cm) size and contains 224pages. It is bound in laminated boards and has a printed dust jacket. It has color illustration throughout and contains more than 300 color photographs.
These copies include a loose supplement to this book that was printed after the publication date of this edition. The shells are described and they are pictured with excellent quality photographs. Many photos show the living animals as well as the shells. The author is considered to be among the experts in the study of these shells. The title is a bit misleading since coverage of the book is not only the true cowries (Cypraea) but also includes related shells in the familes Ovulidae, Trividae and Eratoidae. This book is out of print now but these are new copies from publisher's remaining inventory.
