Predatory Dinosaurs of the World: A Complete Illustrated Guide
Paul, Gregory S.,
ISBN: 9780671687335
Simon & Schuster, New York, 1989. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: Gregory Paul. First Edition. First impression. Size: Quarto 4to . 464 pages. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Mild tanning throughout. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. The cover has bumps and marks indicating prior use but is in very good condition overall. This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. Paul thinks dinosaurs are fun, and he conveys his enthusiasm in this well-written account of their life and times. In the first part of the book he describes how the predatory dinosaurs (meat-eating dinosaurs, as opposed to herbivorous dinosaurs) evolved, what they looked like and how they lived. He dispels some commonly held notions: dinosaurs were not cold-blooded, slow or stupid; they were, in fact, the ancestors of birds. The second part of the book is an illustrated catalogue of all important predatory dinosaurs known to date, a new reorganization of predatory dinosaur taxonomy and systematics. Dinosaur are obviously the love of Paul's life, and he sometimes makes us forget that these extraordinary creatures have been extinct for at least 65 million years. In addition, as a paleontologist who does his own illustrations, he can back up his contention that dinosaurs "look neat." Illustrator: Gregory Paul. Quantity Available: 1.

This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. A lavish photo-and-text celebration of everyone's favorite dinosaur. Although paleontologist Horner and science-writer Lessem (Kings of Creation, 1992, etc.) join forces here (as they did on the children's book Digging Up Tyrannosaurus Rex, 1992), this is presented as a first-person account by Horner, covering both his years as a fossil hound and current scientific understanding of T. rex. In a science dominated by flamboyant figures, Horner's cool head is notable: Citing the inadequacies of data, he refuses to rule on whether T. rex had depth vision or hunted in packs or cared for its young.
