Exotic Conchology: or Figures and Descriptions of Rare, Beautiful, or Undescribed Shells is a book written by William Swainson and Sylvanus Charles Thorp Hanley and published in 1841. Swainson was an English naturalist and artist, while Hanley was an English conchologist and dealer in shells. Together, they produced a visually stunning work that features illustrations of exotic shells from around the world.

The book contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of a wide range of shell species, including many that were previously unknown to science. Swainson's illustrations are particularly noteworthy, as they are considered some of the most beautiful and accurate depictions of shells ever created. The images were produced using lithography, a printing technique that was still relatively new at the time, and the vivid colors and intricate details of the illustrations helped to make Exotic Conchology a highly sought-after collector's item.
