Hunting: Books!

9 posts in this topic

Hello all,

 

Despite three years of 'slimming down my collection' (no such thing has remotely occurred--the end goal is a nicer collection but fewer pieces), I am pretty slim on fossil literature! I am looking to expand my library, and I am happy to trade for books--I will look into purchasing them, but ideally I can hit two birds one stone :P . 

I am mainly looking for books on paleozoic invertebrates, but I would take a look at anything! English, Spanish, and Russian (my' edem v Rossiyu, leto 2018!), but English is primarily what I'm hunting.

 

To trade, I have a little bit of everything--trilobites, fish, ammonites, ferns, and plenty more, with the exceptions of dinosaur material and shark teeth. If you're looking for something specific I will let you know what I have and send pictures your way :) . 

 

Reese

I have a spare copy of Common Fossil Plants of Western North America that my mother spent $30Cdn on, not realizing that I already had it. Not sure if that would be any use to you (might depend in what part of the US you're in), nor am I sure if something worthwhile could be worked out, what with the int'l shipping and all, but it's available in any case.

I appreciate the offer, but having sent a few things to Canada I am afraid I must pass based on shipping--from the US a small flat rate is $25USD, and I can't imagine the other way is much cheaper!

I was fortunate to meet him a few years ago when I was visiting schools and he gave a fantastic lecture! I messaged you about some of your books :)
