kurten coverThe Age of Dinosaurs, 1968
By Bjorn Kurten

Fairly nice book on dinosaurs by the noted paleontologist Bjorn Kurten.  The book contains numerous photos
of mounted dinosaur skeletons from a variety of museums.  Most of the life illustrations are mediocre pen and ink
stippled drawings by an uncredited artist.  Unfortunately I would crack the spine of my copy if I tried to scan one
of the illustrations.

Finnish-born Kurten specialized in fossil mammals and also dabbled in fiction, writing "Dance of the Tiger"
a book about the fictional interactions between Neanderthals and Cro Magnon man.  This interesting book (alas, I
lost my copy) was written in 1978, well before the inferior fiction books by Jane Auel that cover similar ground.
