Recently Collected Shells of Vietnam
by Nguyen Ngoc Thach

ISBN 8886070133, published in 2007  by  L'Informatore Piceno and NNT, Acona, Italy, bound in laminated boards, stitched binding, 384 pages, A4 size (about 8.25 by 11.7cm), 118 plates most in color a few are b/w drawings

This is a beautifully produced book and the quality of the photography and the printing does put it  far ahead of the Thach's earlier book. But on the other hand I find that there is a lack of organization in the plates that makes this book very difficult to use. The first series of plates are the shells collected by the author since the publication of the previous book. There is a second series of plates that is devoted to the malformed shells that Dr. Thach is so fond of and that are a major part of his collection. The descriptions are well written and unusually complete. Not everyone will agree with the nomenclature presented for all of these shells, but I guess that no shell book will ever be able to make that claim.
