“Sea & Land Shells of the Don Pisor Collection”

Color, Form, Shape

Written and compiled by Don Pisor

ISBN 978- 3- 939767- 62 -6, 2015 published by ConchBooks, Harxheim, Germany, hardbound in laminated boards, A4 size, 21 by 29.5cm (about 8.25 by 11.75 inches), 700 pages, of which 673 are full sized color photographic plates of shells in this collection and 13 of which are reproductions of the extraordinary detailed drawings by Tony D’Attilio in black and white and some of these include color photos of the shells on which the drawing was based.

This is an amazing inside look at one of the most comprehensive and extraordinary shell collections of our times that has been lovingly and carefully assembled by Don Pisor over the course of his 45 years as a shell collector and a shell seller.  Don has traveled to many of the remote places in the world to assemble his collection and it is a pleasure to have a photographic record of some of the pieces that Don feels are important and interesting that he wants to share with us.  This book also serves us well since a number of the shells that are illustrated in it are not found in the general reference works available to us today. As well as a large preponderance of marine shells you will find some interesting land and fresh water shells and many mal-formed shells that have developed in an amazing variety of shapes. The photographic illustrations are large and sharp and you can almost get the feeling that you are looking over the author’s shoulder into his shell cabinets.
