|Identification of and by the past: Even the books the Pendergrafts use to identify their finds are antiques. French palenontologist Georges Cuvier published in 1836, The Ossemens Fossiles Atlas 1 with pen and ink drawings of Pleistocene fossils. The jawbone to the right is from a wooly rhinoceros.|
Due to our large collection of antique natural history books we are able to provide select chapters which we hope will be beneficial for research. None of this material has been copyrighted.
Since the notations and line drawings date prior to 1900 we cannot guarantee the accuracy of species names or the scientific theories of the times. Be aware that further research of present paleontological works may be necessary. Regardless , the drawings are helpful and enjoyable to view.
