By: N/A

Price: $95.00

Seller ID: 2066331

Condition: Very Good


Each print faintly foxed. Five matted and framed color prints. Frames 8 5/8 x 11 3/8, images 5 7/8 x 8 1/4. Matted and framed by Summit Glass and Picture Frame Company on Aug. 1 1966. These were acquired as part of a large collection of books and prints on seashell collecting and conchology, and most likely came from a 19th century volume on conchology (they are labeled plates 9, 10, 21, 24, and 33), though we were unable to identify which work this might have been. Each print features shells from the Turbinidae genus, also known as turban snails or turbos. View more info
