Life Long Ago, 1937
Carroll Lane Fenton.
Life Long Ago is one of
several books on prehistoric life written by Carroll Lane Fenton.
Fenton was a gifted
artist who included many of his own pencil/charcoal illustrations in
books. Life Long Ago
contains five of the six
illustrations prepared by James E. Allen for the Sinclair
Dinosaur Book. The
only Allen illustration not
included in Fenton's book is the cover
illustration for the Sinclair book. (Note that Fenton's The Fossil Book
does not include any
of Allen's illustrations, and Prehistoric
World only contains two--Brontosaurus and
the Stegosaurus printed on the cover.) Get a copy of this book,
the Sinclair book, for
the beautiful Allen illustrations.
The illustration on the left is that of a "Brontosaurus" by
James E. Allen. The illustration on the right is
Dimetrodon--one of several pencil/charcoal illustrations prepared by
