Gerard Case’s “A Pictorial Guide to Fossils”

Recommended Posts

The Jersey Devil

Hi everybody,

 

I have a question about this book. There are two versions of it. One of them has an ammonite on the cover and the other has a Meg tooth on it. What are the differences between the two books and which one is more recommended?

 

Thanks!

DPS Ammonite

Per Abe Books, the ammonite covered book was published in 1982; the shark tooth covered book in 1992.

 

 

Google Books lists both books as 515 pages and the 1992 edition as an illustrated reprint.

Further research might reveal their differences.

I do not believe any substantial changes were made to the second edition. It was paperback as compared to the original bound hard back.  I still use this book on occasion. It was fairly well done and at the time (80's-90's) a great resource. It would make a fine addition to any paleo library. IMHO

 

When I was still living in NY and hunting Big Brook regularly it wasn't uncommon to get back to the car and find that Gerry had been there stuffing fliers promoting the book under windshield wipers.

I agree with erose.  I have the Case hard-cover book, and endorse it for its broad coverage with images of many interesting fossils.

That link comes up "not secure" and it won't open for me.  Probably they just have not updated their security certificate, and my University's firewall is blocking access.

I’m not getting anything from the link either. 

 

While it does come up as not secure so does tff for me.
