THE JEHOL FOSSILS: The Emergence of Feathered Dinosaurs, Beaked Birds and Flowering Plants

London: Academic Press, 2008. Hardcover. "In recent years, the late Mesozoic fossils found at Jehol in northern China have shown the world some of the most astonishing creatures to be discovered since the first complete skeleton of Archaeopteryx in 1861, and have become the focus of important new paleontological research. On this fabulous roster are four-winged dinosaur and many feathered ones, the first beaked bird and many of its allies, the first plants with flowers and fruits, fishes with puzzling geographic distributions, early frogs, salamanders and mammals, pterosaurs that ruled the Mesozoic skies, and thousands of species of invertebrates such as molluscs, concostracans, ostracods, shrimps, insects and spiders [...] Lavishly illustrated with nearly 280 illustrations, including 200 photographs showing the diversity of taxa and beauty of their preservation. Oblong quarto. Original burgundy cloth binding, with silver titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #67792
