NoteEXTRA SPECIAL SALE: This is an extra special sale comprised entirely of exceptional specimens drawn from my private collection, being sold to benefit arts philanthropy, as I am moving in a new collecting direction. These specimens represent innumerable upgrades and highlights of my collecting and dealing career, and in many cases are the finest examples of the species which have ever passed through my hands. Please enjoy this opportunity to acquire many outstanding and unique seashells from one of the world’s pre-eminent collections. EPITONIUM SCALARE: An outstanding giant specimen of exceptional overall quality of the pure and beautiful Philippine form, (not from Vietnam). It is rare for Philippine examples to attain this size. Nothing but the typical invariable loss at the apex of all giant examples, (that is, those not ‘fixed’ but artificial means). Exceptionally clean, with no substrate discoloration. Balanced asymmetry of exquisite proportions. Equidistant axial ribs. In addition to its great size and quality, the specimen exhibits a markedly broad form, with a greatly expanded body whorl, lending it a particularly graceful overall form. A scalare for the connoissuer. Size: 61.6 mm (longest dimension). Grading: F+++; w/o. Data: Off Corregidor, Luzon, Philippines; upon mud/sand substrate; 80-100 m; trawled; 2008. Provenance: JES private collection; Melbourne/London.
