Currie, Philip J. & Kevin Padian. Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs. Academic Press:1997. Could this fabulous book really be out of print already? It appears to be so. Academic Press has none, and nobody else appears to either. That's a real pity, because this is one hellacious book. Encyclopedic in format, well illustrated and carefully written, this volume is a must for anybody interested in dinosaurs. And it weighs about ten pounds! 9"x11", 869 pages, b&w and color illustrations, dj as new.

Pearl, Richard M. Guide to Geologic Literature. New York McGraw-Hill Book Company:1951.

If you only have one book on the subject this should not be it if you have many, add this one. 6"x9", 239 pages, former owner's rubberstamp.
