This book is intended for both philatelically interested persons and collectors of ammonites as well as nautilids. It gives an overview of all stamps, postmarks and postal stationeries displaying ammonoids, belemnites or nautiloids issued to date. A photograph and brief description of the morphology of the fossil featured, together with notes on its distribution are given to explain the philatelic material. We have endeavoured to show on the photograph the exact species represented wherever possible, but when such was not available, we used an image of a closely related species of the same genus.
