About this Item: New Haven: Yale University Press, . First edition., 1966. Pp. xiv, 388; 65 full page plates (two are double-page folding plates and one is a quadruple page foldout of a photographic panorama of Como Bluff ) - the plates are fine halftones of fossils or line-drawings of fossils, 11 text-figures. Publisher's original tan cloth, lettered in brown on the spine, original pictorial dust jacket, sm 4to. In 1877, Como Bluff in Wyoming yielded the first major discovery of dinosaur bones found anywhere in the world. Over the preceding multiple decades, this area produced many of the dinosaur skeletons that today are found in museums around the world. In the 1880s Othniel Marsh, at a cost of $45,000 commissioned the drawing of many fine lithographic plates of the dinosaur bones. When Marsh died in 1899, these fine plates had never been published. This volume publishes these plates for the first time and provides and overview of Como Bluff and the many discoveries made there. It's publication in 1966 marked the centenary of the founding of the Peabody Museum at Yale University where many of these discoveries are still housed. No ownership marks. The cloth binding is a bit water stained, there are marginal water marks to the top edge of the first 20 pages, the endpapers shown some discoloration along the top edge, the dust jacket is complete with a few marginal watermarks to the rear panel; overall, a tight copy in good condition.

About this Item: Yale University Press, 1966., New Haven and London:, 1966. 4to. xiv, 388 pp. 13 figs. (incl. color frontis.), folding map, 155 plates (some folding), index. Brown cloth, dust jacket; spine head rubbed, jacket extremities very worn, the book is a very nice copy. Very good. A nicely illustrated volume on the bones collected at Como Bluff by fossil hunter Othaniel Charles Marsh (1831-1899) at Como Bluff (most of which were collected during his "Bone Wars" with Edward Drinker Cope). Ostrom was an American paleontologist, and one of the most important proponents of T. H. Huxley's theory that dinosaurs were biologically closer to birds than lizards. He taught at Yale, where he also served as Curator Emeritus of vertebrate paleontology at the Peabody Museum of Natural History, which houses most of Marsh's collection. Seller Inventory # SW1201
