About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Italian

This photographic book shows molluscs from the Pearls Islands, a large group of Panamanian islands in the Pacific Ocean of which only 90 are inhabited and another hundred do not even have a name. The authors visited two: Contadora, which takes its name from the fact that El Contador was based here, whose job was to measure and count the pearls collected by the locals, and Viveros, an island much less inhabited than the previous one and covered with a dense impenetrable bush.

Summary in Italian:
Continua il viaggio per mari e oceani alla ricerca di conchiglie marine da fotografare. Dopo il diario fotografico "Conchiglie di Lanzarote" ora è la volta di quello sulle Isole delle Perle, un grande gruppo di isole panamensi nell'Oceano Pacifico di cui solo 90 sono abitate e un altro centinaio non hanno neppure un nome. Ma noi ne visitammo soltanto due: Contadora, che prende il nome dal fatto che qui aveva sede El Contador, il cui compito consisteva nel misurare e contare le perle raccolte dai locali, e Viveros, un'isola assai meno abitata della precedente e ricoperta da una fitta boscaglia impenetrabile.
