hotton coverDinosaurs, 1963
By Nicholas Hotton III

According to a short biography in the book, Hotton was Associate Curator of Fossil Amphibians and
Reptiles at the Smithsonian Institution when he wrote Dinosaurs.  The book includes several plates showing
photos of mounted skeletons from the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, photos of dinosaur models,
and a few copies of well known illustrations of prehistoric animals, from artists such as James M. Gleeson
and Charles R. Knight.  Alas, the paltry illustrations in this book are disappointing, so if you like to collect old
dinosaur books for the illustrations, do not bother with this one.
