Illustrations of the Fossil Conchology of Great Britain and Ireland, with the description and localities of all the species is a book written and illustrated by Thomas Brown in 1849. Brown was a British geologist, malacologist, and paleontologist who was particularly interested in the study of fossil shells.

The book contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of various species of fossil shells found in Great Britain and Ireland. It is divided into two parts. The first part contains an introduction to the study of fossil shells and a description of the geological formations where these fossils can be found. The second part contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of the various species, organized by geological formation.

The illustrations in the book are particularly noteworthy, as they were created using a technique called lithography, which allowed for very detailed and accurate depictions of the shells. The book includes over 300 hand-colored lithographs of fossil shells, along with detailed descriptions of each species, including their size, shape, and other distinguishing features.

Brown's work was considered groundbreaking at the time, as it was one of the first comprehensive studies of fossil shells in Great Britain and Ireland. His detailed descriptions and accurate illustrations helped to advance the study of paleontology and malacology, and his work remains an important reference for researchers and enthusiasts in these fields today.
