General Conchology, or A Description of Shells, Arranged According to the Linnean System is a book written by William Wood and published in 1815. The book is a detailed description of shells, arranged according to the Linnaean system of classification, and is illustrated with plates that are drawn and colored from nature.

The book begins with an introduction to conchology, including a brief history of the subject and an explanation of the Linnaean system. 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 a key feature, with each plate showing multiple examples of a particular species or family of shells. The plates are highly detailed and accurately represent the color and markings of the shells, making them a valuable resource for collectors and researchers.
