Elements of Conchology, According to the Linnaean System is a book written by Edward John Burrow and published in 1825. The book is a comprehensive guide to the study of shells, based on the Linnaean system of classification. It is illustrated with twenty-eight plates, which were drawn from nature and engraved by Charles Heath.

The book begins with an introduction to the study of conchology, including an explanation of the Linnaean system and the different parts of a shell. It then goes on to describe the different families of shells, with each family given a detailed explanation of its characteristics, distribution, and habitat.

The illustrations in the book are highly detailed and accurate, and are a key feature of the work. They include depictions of the external and internal structure of shells, as well as close-up views of the shells themselves. The images were engraved by Charles Heath, a renowned engraver of the time, and are considered some of the finest examples of shell illustrations from this period.
