About this book

In 1877 tons of massive dinosaur bones were uncovered at Como Bluff, Wyoming, the first major discovery of such remains anywhere in the world. O.C. Marsh, then director of Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History, financed and claimed the greater portion of the excavations, reunited the sections that were excavated, named such dinosaurs as Brontosaurus and Stegosaurus, and had lithographs made of the bones. In 1966 Marsh's Dinosaurs, a book that displayed the lithographic plates along with an account of the collecting activities directed by Marsh, was published to great acclaim. Now, to celebrate the centennial of Marsh's death, this palaeontological classic is reprinted with a new foreword by Peter Dodson and a historical overview by Clifford Miles and David W. Hamblin.
