Spine and edges sunned, with some modest chipping to the spine extremities, lower fore-tip gnawed, but internally a very good, tight copy. First edition. Mantell (1790-1852) was an active geologist and paleontologist, when not pursuing his professional medical career as an obstetrician. Including his work with the fossils that were finally accepted in 1825 as the remains of the Iguanadon, Mantel was, by the time of his death, credited with the discovery of four out of the five genera of dinosaurs then known. In this work, he turned to consideration of species of a much smaller scale. NISSEN ZBI 2685. FREEMAN 2446. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76090)
