coverFossils: A Guide to Prehistoric Life, 1962
by F. H. T. Rhodes, H. S. Zim, and P. R. Shaffer

If you collect old books on prehistoric animals you probably already have a copy of this one. 
This pocket-size book is part of the Golden Nature Guide series edited by Herbert S. Zim.  This
book considers both invertebrate and vertebrate fossils.


The illustrations in this book are quite nice.  Many of the vertebrate restorations are based on--you guessed
it--the artwork of Charles R. Knight, particularly his Chicago Field Museum of Natural History murals.
