Oh. Oh no.  :blink:  :shakehead: 

I'm pretty sure we don't want James coming back to sign that!  :faint:

 

Nice acquisition, Al! :)

Nice! Beautiful condition. Seconding the question about cost.

 

If you have ties to a university, all of the series are available in PDF from HathiTrust. Of course, that's not as cool as having the real book in hand!

@Nimravis @Mediospirifer It wasn’t exactly a cheap purchase. It was $248 plus shipping I think. I may be off a few dollars. I hesitated pretty hard at first but I felt like this was a rare opportunity. I don’t have ties to universities unfortunately. I had a lot of access at the state school (buffalo state) I went to but I’m long graduated. I also liked the idea of having that physical copy! I was trying to get a PDF when I stumbled on the amazon sale. I don’t think I’ve ever made such an expensive (to me lol) impulse buy in my life but I doubt I’ll ever regret it lol.

If you look at the upper row of the comment box, there's a smiley-face icon. Click it, and you'll find a box full of emojis to choose from! Including a bunch that are TFF-specific. :D  :dinothumb:

@piranha wow!!! So much information. I knew about Clark but I didn’t realize his major impact.  As always you provide some of the best info!! There are some amazing trilobite plates in here. One plate from the port jervis area would have been a truley massive trilobite!! Lotta mega fauna trilos from that area in this book. Clark must have been the one to bring these wild looking trilobites out of obscurity and into the science books forever! 

 

as a side note....I wonder if anyone on the forum knows someone selling or knows how to aquire the “Eurypterida of New York” book. I’d literally pay a months salary for it and not bat an eye.......well maybe I’m exaggerating but still haha.

Those volumes are works of art.  I think you did very well to pick up that classic volume at that price.  BTW if you are still in the vicinity of Buffalo State U you probably can still get access to the libraries as an alumnus.  At least, many universities do that.

 

My university library has all the Hall volumes, but for some reason they don't let people check them out. Wonder why? :headscratch:

@FossilDAWG hmmm maybe I do still have access.....I’ll have to look into that. Lots of stuff I want to read but can’t. I’m 3 hours from Buffalo now. My email is still active too so I wonder if that would get me access. I may have to ask one of my old professors B)...

 

and too bad they they don’t let people at least see them! They are jaw dropping to say the least

Oh I can see them.  They are beautiful, I really like those old lithographs.  They are works of art, but unfortunately it wasn't all that uncommon for paleontologists to take "artistic liberties" with some of the illustrations.  They would sometimes fill in missing bits, or "correct" things (like cracks due to flattening), of link things that didn't really belong together, like a conveniently placed bryozoan twig that becomes a spine sticking out the front of the cephalon.  Photos are less "artistic" but generally more accurate, though even there some paleontologists would "retouch" photos to add details that didn't really exist.

@FossilDAWG I can see where some of these liberties may have come into play ha. Wild spines/features  on a few specimens :trilowalk:
