Hay O. P. 1929 – 1930 SECOND BIBLIOGRAPHY AND CATALOGUE OF THE FOSSIL VERTEBRATA OF NORTH AMERICA Carnegie Institution Publication #390 Two massive volumes, both in wraps overall light wear, minor chips, short tear to wrap along spine, small stain to paper spine cover, blind stamp else contents clean and a very good set of a rather scarce and very important vertebrate paleontology reference. Vol. 1 with 916 pp., Vol. 2 with 1074 pp. While a prolific paleontologist in his own right, Hay took it upon himself to compile an exhaustive catalog of North American vertebrate fossils, often reassigning specimens to other genera, neglecting type specimens or lack thereof, designating lectotypes, etc.. which had the end result of causing 100 years of chaos, which still continues as the current generation of researchers works through the mess he created. Hence, this volume is a must have primary reference for the fossil vertebrate researcher and enthusiast.

All in original bindings, some external wear with one volume have a bumped/bent corner (the bump barely affects the first few pages of text). The contents are generally good, all the volume have NO prior ownership markings and text blocks are mostly clean aside from some scattered foxing and with some dust soiling and/or foxing to inside the front covers and free end papers. The volumes included in this set are: (1) THE PERMIAN EXCURSION (NORTHERN PART) with 135 pp., 10 plates and 20 figures; (2) THE PERMIAN EXCURSION (SOUTHERN PART) with 131 pp., 7 plates, 8 figures; (3) THE PETROLEUM EXCURSION with 63 pp., 3 plates, 13 figures; (4) THE URALIAN EXCURSION with 107 pp., 17 figures; and (5) EXCURSION SIBERIENNE (in French) with 141 pp., 5 plates, 17 figures. Not a complete set, but contans 5 of the guidebooks. In doing my comparable listings research, I found the Petroleum volume to be common and priced at $25 on up, and the remainder to be somewhat rare, starting at $100 on up per volume. Our collection of these guidebooks is priced to sell!     Price: $95.00          (stock#EUR01)
