"Nature's Art - The Inner and Outer Dimensions of the Shell" by William A. Conklin. 1988 edition. Hardcover with a dust jacket. 241 printed pages.

"Combining the sciences of radiography, photography, and conchology, William A. Conklin has developed a unique art form that has gained national and international acclaim. By juxtaposing black and white x-ray photographs of seashells with color photographs of their exteriors, Conklin beautifully demonstrates that the inner dimension of the shell is often just as lovely as its exterior. Each shell in this book is a perfect specimen. The shells range from whelks common on the beaches of the United States to rare cowry from Fiji, but all were selected because of their inner and outer dimensional beauty and configuration."

Excellent vintage condition strong binding. The previous owner did write in black on the first page (see photos). Otherwise, the pages are clean and unmarked. The book measures 9 1/4" high by 12 1/2" wide by 1" thick and weighs 3 pounds 7 ounces.
