Seashells on Stamps
by Renato Moscatelli

No ISBN, published by the author in Brazil in 1984, 2 volumes in laminated paper covers, about 14.5 by 21 cm., 5.75 by 8.25 inches,  volume 1 has 439 pages of text only, volume 2 has 269 pages of color reproductions of stamps, covers, special cancellations, This book also was published in a  Portuguese edition, this set is in English

There are several other books that have been done about the cross-over hobby of collecting stamps with shells figured on them. This is the most comprehensive book on that subject that I have seen. While there are undoubtedly many more stamps showing molluscs  issued after the date of publication of this book, this book seem very complete up to the time it was printed. The book includes first day covers and special cancellations and sheets. The first volume describes and gives information about the shells pictured on the stamps which are illustrated in the second volume. The illustrations are nicely done and are in color.
